ATTN: I am in semi-retirement from writing currently while I attend college full-time to complete my Bachelor's of Science specifically in Radiologic Sciences. There just isn't enough time in the day to study, work, take care of my kids and dedicate any serious time to writing. This will probably be the first year I won't attempt to NaNo ( as well. Perhaps during Winter Break I'll try to fix up that story for GlimmerTrain, we'll see what the future holds.


* December 2005 saw the relase of a new slimmed down, poetry only version of Egression in hardback.

* August 2004 saw the publication of Egression by Lulu Press, it is a collection of poems and short fiction.

A little about me:

I won an Honorable Mention (third place) in the 13th annual Ray Bradbury Creative Writing Contest(1993).

I have completed a 5 book series for small children that is being considered, and am revising a fantasy fiction novel currently.

I am a stay-at-home mother of three, attended the Florida Institute of Technology where I wrote for the school paper, and at one time was a Black Jack and Poker dealer at the Horseshoe Casino.

I have lots of great ideas, and if not now will eventually get them all out on paper.
