About

I work in PR and as a byproduct get to do quite a bit of editing/writing at work - but it's all nonfiction  articles/speeches/press releases and unfortunately my name doesn't get to byline the articles I write (oh, the joys of ghostwriting!). I absolutely adore my job - but I miss creative writing! Creative nonfiction was my forte back in my not-so-ancient college days, but it's not what I like to read. I'm using Wattpad to practice my fiction skillz. 

The way I write is that I publish first...edit later. Easier to get the plot out there and then go back and refine the language and other minutia.

Favorite genres are epic fantasy, PNR, and urban fantasy, but I'll read anything. I'm in search of my reader soulmate who is as diehard a fan of Ilona Andrews as I am.

Random fun facts:
- I'm crazy strong. I can deadlift 235 lbs (that's about 107 kg for my non-American fans)
- I'm a singer. I was trained classically (think Italian arias), but prefer to sing showtunes
- I have dual citizenship - U.S. and Germany. Aber ich spreche kein Deutsch.
- I drink obscene amounts of diet Mountain Dew (usually a liter per day)

Want to know anything else, just ask!
