Author has written 9 stories for Stargate: Atlantis.

All about me! Hmm, not sure what to say. There is really not much to say, except that I am happy with my life. I am doing a job I love, teaching preschool. I am happily married and mommy to 2 rambunctious Dogs. I love Stargate SG1 and Atlantis. I play around on Gateworld a lot (a little too much my hubby thinks).

I have never been one to take chances and reveal myself to others. Writing a story and posting it on the web is a huge step for me. I am no creative genius but sometimes I need to step outside of my safety zone and express myself in a different way. Writing is a new thing for me and I am not sure how it will go. Hopefully I will find that I have something to say and that people will enjoy how I say it.
