Born in the Midwest, I have always enjoyed creative expression. A move to the west in my teens proved to be an instrumental turning point in my life and there I met two influential teachers. Both inspired me to reach for greater heights with my written word. In recent years, my renewed creativity served has a way to purge residual emotions and thoughts. This cartharsis led to writing, poetry and a passion for painting. Eventually my creative endeavors evolved to my first published novel, Bound by Hatred. My ultimate goal is to draw attention to abuse and its numerous ramifications.
Interests: Art, Photography, Poetry, Writing and Reading.
