When I was a little girl, I wanted to be an actress. Probably had something to do with wanting to kiss Jake Ryan. My logic went something like, if the script said he had to kiss me...he would HAVE TO kiss me! In second gr...

Over the last ten to fifteen years, the publishing industry has undergone a massive shift from print to digital and from the east coast to the west coast. Understanding this shift is critical for anyone working in the field or who wishes to. Taking stock can be difficult. All manner of publishing has been greatly…

Story
Tagline
Writing for fun when it's fun.
Introduction
I have been entertaining myself with made up stories all of my life. I've finally decided to start writing them down and might someday self-publish, but I won't quit my day job. Finished the rough draft of my first novel (MF book) in May 2015, and am currently wading through the editing process. I also love talking about movies, intending to knit (but not knitting), and looking for my next favorite book. Married to Kilburn, one kitty. I'll try not to swear too much.
Bragging rights
Finished rough draft of my first book, will be editing forever.
