THANK YOU for reading and reviewing! I don't always reply to each review, however, I cherish each one. Some even give me great options on my stories (always credited, of course). I do respond to the rare PM that I receive. If you have a question regarding my work, feel free to bug me!

09/20/2013 -- I'm turning my favorite bits of deleted old stories into one-shots. I haven't decided if I'll post them as individuals or a themed collection.

March 2014 -- I AM still ADJUSTING "Rude Awakening." That means I am losing the bloated filler, tightening up some story lines, and rewriting jumbled sections. The current posting will stay as is until it's finished. Then all but chapter one will be deleted and the other chapters re-posted. The rest of the story is still in progress, but not as fast as I'd like - simply because Real Life loves roadblocks and side trails.


ABOUT ME:

I'm 40 now, and as many put it - I don't care. It's liberating and exhilarating to get to this stage. If only it didn't take so long. Yes, my profile picture is really me - in one of my many hats.

I live in my backyard - napping in the hammock, sleeping in the tent, watching movies with the projector, food and libation on the patio, growing fruits and vegetables, etc... It's not everything I want it to be, but it's getting there.

I have a fiction press account. It's empty right now as I decide what goes up. I once had anything and everything. It was a mess of odds and ends, bits and pieces.

I have a personal blog - outinarizona.tumblr.com and a themed blog - frommybackyard.tumblr.com. I like tumblr because it has a variety of posting options all in one place. I hate having a myriad of accounts and having to follow one person in several different places. I don't have much out yet, as I'm still working on my topics. Would it be redundant to post writing alerts there? I don't suppose everyone follows or fancies both fiction sites.
