Anointed a female fictionista by an overzealous Georgia Bulldog fan, I immediately took it for my job description.
I write. I write a lot. And, when I’m not writing, I think about writing “a lot“. You may think we’re having a conversation, but invariably I’m stealing your name, asking how to spell it, or describing the look on your face in five words or less. I write dark, moody stuff with the sometimes funny. I write lyrical, fantastical, amazing stuff. My readers complain they can’t put the book down because just when they think they’ve figured the story out, it changes and becomes something else.
I spend hours on photo sites looking for the right look for my book covers. I know the models and photographers by name. It’s part of my over-controlling tendencies. I like controlling everything to do with my books.
I am married and have two children and they all like having me home, but complain that I write too much. Add to that the twittering and the facebooking and the wordpressing and now google plus-ing and checking Amazon. It’s a full-time gig. And, I take classes with The Writers Studio, so I’m “literary” besides.
When I’m not writing, I like to drink good wine or champagne and look at my awesome view which I rarely see from my basement refuge.
So Welcome. That’s a little about me.
