My posting ID: It come from an old poem that starts: Monday's child is fair of face, Tuesday's child is full of grace...
Some about me: I don't easily fit into any category in particular. I'm old enough to have three teen-aged boys but have been mistaken for my eldest's's girlfriend. He didn't like that too much.
As an udergrad I majored in a little of everything and graduated--in four years--with a quadruple major. Yeah, really. The I proceeded to take on grad work in totally different areas. After my PhD, I spent 16 years as a college professor in education and counseling. Currently I am an education pastor in a small church doing what I've always wanted to do. Go figure.
My other artsy pursuits include photography, cooking, and scrap booking.
I earned by first black belt in tae kwon do with my kids two years ago. Currently I am about a month away from earning a second black belt in a second martial arts discipline. Currently I learning my Chinese fighting fan form. Love it! I can't wait till we get to start studying with the sword!
My stories: I've been writing since I was 10. By the time I graduated HS I'd written several individual novels and a trilogy for my friends. Sci fi/fantasy were and are my favorite genres. Those efforts are in a box in the closet and will likely stay there.
JAFF: Given Good Principles began as a little plot bunny that was supposed to be four vignettes and done. Well, it hasn't worked out that way. It looks like I'm in for the long haul. I'm posting chapters roughly weekly on this one.
Non-JAFF on Fiction Press: Currently I've got two stories up. Firefly is a sci fi piece, totally finished and in final edits I should add. It's sequel, currently titled Storm Season is in final edits now. I'm positing weekly on Firefly and will continue with its sequel afterward. Both are largely character driven tales, I leave the techno-speak to the engineers! My main character, Ari, is at the most basic level, a survivor. But survival has its costs. These are stories of the journey of turning survival into something more like victory.
In His Garden is a very different piece. This one is very personal and harder to make public because of that. I am also posting a little more irregularly on this one, it is an allegory more than anything, reflecting my own spiritual journey.
I welcome comments and reviews!
