For years a story knocked on my brain. Once in a while, I let it in and listened. Finally one night, I sat down at the computer and began typing. I typed all night and was hooked on writing from that point on. The story simmered, bubbled, and built until it was a finished book.

My journey from ordinary citizen to writer is probably not that unique. Writers come from all sorts of careers and backgrounds. Mine is in visual arts, so writing is a natural extension of describing it in words rather than in pictures or colors. I have a degree in Art and have been decorating houses as long as I can remember.

I try to learn something new each day about the craft, the process, and the business of writing. Thanks for dropping by.
