Stories hunt me and fill every waking moment. When the say "Give me liberty or give me death," my brain riots and changes it into, give me books or give me food. I always choose books because reading and writing them provide the sustainance I need.
I love words in all the ways possible and impossible. I live to write, and I write to live. All three degrees I have are about writing (Bachelor's degree in Mass Communication, M.A. in Journalism, and a second M.A. in Creative Writing). I teach, edit, revise, and review words as my profession.
