Hello, ya'all (no, it might not be standard, but I'll bastardize slang any way I want to.)
And that's pretty much me.
I have a degree in English and a minor in Comparative Religion and work a soul-sucking job at a bank to take care of my two teenage boys, my husband (who pushed me onto this site - so blame him) and an old, blind, deaf and neurotic dog. I write as a release from real life. A way of not banging my head on my desk at the mind-numbing and corporate bureaucracy that I face daily.
Trust me - by the time you are 30, you will understand. Dilbert is one of my heroes.
I cannot take read requests. I apologize for that, but I can barely manage to juggle my own life and works.
And - trust me - you wouldn't like what I have to say if I did read your work. My mother called me "painfully-honest" when I was 11. I try, but it really hasn't gotten much better since then.
And I don't follow back. If you choose to follow me, I assume that it's because you like and enjoy what I do. I don't ask you to do so and I'm waaaaay beyond high school and popularity contests. I am old enough to be your mother (or, if you do the math) your very-young grandmother.
I've had some success on WP as an underground author, but hold out no hope of making the What's Hot or Featured lists. I've pretty-much been shut out of that - politely, mind you.
Because I write outside of the box. Outside of the 1D, Twilight, 50-Shades BS (sorry, Mom - stuff).
But I do write original, thoughtful,humor-laced and thought-provoking works. Not perfectly, but I do try. I believe in strong women, equally-as-strong men and an eventual happily-ever-after. Maybe not what you thought it would be at the start, but I promise you the characters in my head figure it out eventually.
Are you ready to take a roller-coaster ride with me?
You might get frustrated, angry or - occasionally - elated. I am nothing if not devious ;-)
