Writing is my first love. Don't get me wrong. I love my family, where I live, my pets, and Breaking Bad. But words are like magic for me, putting them together one way or the other until a person or a scene takes shape. Sometimes it's so incredible that I forget to eat!
I've done lots of other things in my life besides write. Somehow it all seems like preparation for creating great stories about people like you and me.
Reading Archaeology magazine, newspapers, books, and just about everything else I can get my hands on. Television true crime shows come in second after the news and nature programs.
