Where to begin. . .I've been writing as long as I can remember. What really put the "flame to the fire" was a high school creative writing teacher. She made writing addictive with her "off mainstream" projects (ie: analyzing and writing about the Beatles White album).
My career kept me in jobs where writing was needed. While I have put it on the back burner from time to time, I am now at a point in my life when I can devote 100% to my writing.
Knitting, photography, traveling, reading, dressage (as a spectator now).
