After working for some small press magazines and McGraw Hill as an editorial assistant in the Custom Publishing Division, I started writing non-fiction articles. 

Years later, for no good reason, I moved into writing fiction. I've sold some short stories and had a couple of full read requests from publishers for my first novel. Big industry publishing being what it is, I started looking into indie/self publishing and ended up here on Wattpad.

* Jill of All Trades, Mistress of. . .some cats.
* Sometimes available for read requests
* Sometimes available to judge contests
* Somebody's Mom, but not *your* mom.
* Incurably goofy
