I love writing with every fiber of my soul and have since I was a little girl. I began writing poetry before I could even spell correctly, and wrote my first novel from a vocabulary list in 2nd grade (which I didn't finish until I was in 6th grade but that's irrelevant). I can turn anything into a topic of discussion, and as I get older I find that life seems to be even more curious than before. I am a Mother, student, substance abuse counselor, avid gardener, recovering addict, writer, and a musician. I can often be very silly, courageous, irritated, forgiving, but most of all my heart is loving and compassionate.
