Architect|Designer|Parent by day, writer by [insert carved out niche of time here], aspiring author. 

I started writing a bit "late" [early/mid-30s] compared to most people who decide they want to be writers. Like searching your house for your glasses only to find they were on your head the whole time, I've always enjoyed crafting narrative, I just didn't realize it could be a career.

I've always been a "jack of all trades" and you'll see that in my writing as well. I like writing everything from children's picture books to adult fiction and hope to one day have a box set of published works complete for the whole family.

I'm looking for honest feedback, so feel free to be brutal. I want to know what doesn't work, where you get bored/lost/etc. Constructive criticism is always appreciated, but I'd rather not get a sugarcoated review/comment.

Wrote a quick little story (to be a picture book eventually) about multi-generational caregiving. Let me know what you think! As always, I really appreciate any feedback. Best,HM
