Reading has been a huge factor in my life since I learned to do so when I was three. I prefer to spend my spare time diving into new books or reliving ones previously visited and attempt to pace myself at completing a book a day, though I have been known to finish two or three if I'm left to my own devices.
I have been writing creatively nearly all of my life but until the last few years never pushed myself to complete anything or even show my projects to others. With encouragement from family and friends, namely my husband, I have begun the long and difficult journey to becoming a career writer. I have accomplished one goal on that list and have gotten myself printed; a short story in an anthology published in 2011 and am working hard to complete my other goals.
