If you’re anything like me, you always want to know who it is behind the monitor.
I’ll give you a brief overview.
I grew up a military brat, which means home is simultaneously non-existent and wherever I am at the moment. I don’t like living out of suitcases and boxes, but I do it pretty well.
IN 2016, I finished up graduate school and moved, with my husband and four cats, a thousand miles from the riotous greenery of eastern Tennessee to the less riotous, less green (though it does pretty well in the summer) foothills of Colorado. I think this might be where we stay. At least for a while.
I have a B.A. in English with a writing minor and an M.S.Ed in Instructional Technology.
I’ve been working in the eLearning world since I got my undergrad degree because it afforded me the chance to both write and muck about with various technologies. I’ve written content for a variety of projects and audiences, including human service workers, pharmaceutical reps and military DLI graduates. I’m currently focused in the area of early child care.
In 2013, I wrote the lesson scripts for a program that won Best of the Best/Clinical Category award in the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA).
I write because I have numerous characters in my head and they have to go somewhere. I write because there are stories to tell, even if I’m the only one who ever reads them. I write because I can’t not write.
When I’m not working or writing, I like to read, swill coffee, catch up on television series, game, watch old horror movies, take day-trips, cook/bake, eat Italian food, go on rambling walks, spend time with my husband (and our four troublesome cats), and consider sleeping or picking up new hobbies that will take even more time away from my writing.
