Reintro'ing Myself

Hi everyone,

Today I’m taking part in the Re-introduce Yourself Blogfest hosted by Mark Koopmans, Stephen Tremp, Elise Fallson and C.M. Brown. Some of you know me a little already, and I know some of you, but we don’t all know each other, so this is a fun chance to break-out the nametags and say “Hi.”

Here’s a quick snapshot of what I’ve been up to lately:
  • I started this blog a couple years ago because I love writing (and reading) and being able to discuss it with people who share that joy.
  • I write fantasy and have several novels either completed or in the works. Epic fantasy is my first love, but my current WIP is a space opera and next up is an MG series, so I like to mix it up.
  • Last fall, I took the e-book plunge and published a pair of short stories called Running in the Dark. Check ‘em out here.
  • I’m a PR Counselor by day, an MBA student by night and…oh yeah...in between, I find time to write. I’ll be done with the MBA in May – woo hoo!

For more basic stuff, check out my author page of the blog.

  1. Sounds like you have have three full-time jobs- one as a counselor, another as a student, and finally one as a writer. When do you get to sleep?!

    Like you, I also like to mix up the stuff I write. Keeps life interesting!
