Hello and welcome.

I am a writer.

My favorite reads are beautiful books like The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle and Pigs in Heaven by Barbara Kingsolver, fun books like Crazy for You by Jennifer Crusie and Avalon High by Meg Cabot, and adventurous books like Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh and Restoree by Anne McCaffrey.

I spend my non-writing time exploring interests in an academic library, hiking around the Pacific Northwest, and waking the neighbors with Rock Band.
