Love... Even the word sounds like a sigh. But is it a sigh of contentment—or of regret? If you've found it, the world shines in colors vivid. If you've lost it, life fades into grays and shadows. There's nothing quite as inte...

Story
Tagline
Traded tax planning for writing. Yep. Went off the deep end.
Introduction
Je ne cherche pas; je trouve. 
~ Pablo Picasso

Writer, dog rescuer, citizen of the world. It's about the journey. And the books. Oh, the books. 
Bragging rights
Convinced my boyfriend that his pet allergies were inconsequential compared to rescuing homeless animals. We now have seven dogs, and we've found homes for nine other rescues. B/f now loves animals, worries about their food and water, makes sure they're indoors when it rains... Yes, I'm damn proud of that.
Work
Occupation
I make up lies and put them on paper. Ok, on the computer screen. If the publisher likes them, he puts them on paper.
