Author has written 9 stories for Quantum Leap, Big Bang Theory, and Elder Scroll series.
I'll admit right from the get-go that I'm my own worst editor. This is why, though I have many story ideas floating around in my head, I have so few of them actually written down. The other problem I've found that I have is that while I can very often create a great beginning and a great ending, it's all that stuff in the middle that connects the two that I have a problem with. And having a large mental red pen, systematically striking things out as I write them, doesn't help matters.
Regardless, it won't keep me from trying to get these ideas written down, fleshed out, and brought to some concise and complete finale.
Some of the types of books I like to read are science fiction, fantasy, romance and occasionally a light mystery or two. Therefore, most of the story ideas I have reflect what I like to read. I don't watch much television, but some of my favorite shows have been (and in some cases, still are) Quantum Leap, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Drop Dead Diva and anything on the Food Network. Some of my favorite books are usually series, such as The Lord of the Rings, The Belgariad and The Mallorean series by David and Leigh Eddings, and The Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey.
In my personal life I'm a graphic designer working in a sign shop; I'm married with three kids and six cats--and no, I didn't personally give birth to the cats, but I helped hand-raise five of them from ten-day-old kittens, so they're still (and always will be) my babies.
I love to sew and I collect miniature fashion dolls, and I spend way too much time on Facebook, according to my family. Just about everything else is, as Anne McCaffrey would say, "subject to change."
A great many things have changed and evolved since my last profile posting. My time spent on Facebook has dwindled somewhat, though I do still check in on a daily basis. About a year ago my younger son introduced me to the video game "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim", and now I am a hopeless addict. You may or may not have seen this reflected in two of the stories currently in the works.
Our feline population has changed: the semi-feral mother of the five kittens we had taken in managed to escape the house when a particularly strong wind blew our back door open. We've not seen her since, and know that we never will. She wasn't completely tamed, but it still hurt losing her. We still have her five kittens, who aren't really kittens anymore, and haven't been for a while, and they are still a great comfort.
Real life is still in the nasty habit of getting in the way of things I'd rather do, like write, read, sew, or play "Skyrim". I don't know if I'll ever be able to afford to retire, but I know what I'd spend my time doing if it ever happens. I'll let you know how that works out. In the meantime, please enjoy my drabblings, and as always, I would love to read feedback from you, the reader. Thank you!
