Hello Watties, I am super stoked to finally be on here to read and share some incredible material. As far as reading, I can get into a whole laundry list of topics, but as a writer, my love lies in creative non-fiction, general fiction, paranormal, and poetry. Actually, poetry is probably my first love since I have been writing poems since childhood. I really didn't start writing that much fiction or paranormal stories until after I started college. 

I started creative non-fiction and memoir in 2012 and self-published a collection of stories and poems titled Serotonin with a side of fries, please. I also contributed to a collection of sci-fi/paranormal/fantasy short stories titled, Skyline Worlds. So if you search my name on Amazon, a couple books will come up. Considering that I am a Special Education English teacher and a part-time English professor, I guest I cannot complain since my time and energy is extremely limited. Amazingly, I also find some time for mixed media & collage, jewelry-making, journal-making, photography, and several other creative outlets. You can check out my shop at www.etsy.com/TheForgottenWord. To check out more of my work go to www.facebook.com/taraannlesko.

On Wattpad, I plan on sharing new and old material from the 3 different projects I have going simultaneously at the moment. Yes, I am totally one of those writers who CANNOT focus on one project at a time for too long. This may not be the best way to get something done, but with my workaholic tendencies and my persistent inner demons, any small form of progress is a huge win. So I hope to meet and collaborate with a bunch of like-minded readers and writers because the writer communities I am able to hook up with in person are few and far between around here. Happy reading and writing fellow word nerds!
