I’ve always made up stories in my head. Sometimes I wrote them down on paper, sometimes I didn’t.
I’d best introduce myself. I live in Cochrane, AB Canada, with my husband and our three cats and two dogs. I read a great deal, write every day (almost). I probably spend way too much time online, but I can’t help myself. I love to ride my Honda CBR500R when weather permits.
If I’m not writing, you’ll probably find me with my nose in a book (or rapidly clicking through pages on my e-reader). I like most genres, but I have a fondness for the novels and journals of Simone de Beauvoir. I admire her determination, especially in an era when all women were really expected to do was get married and have children. I’m still working my way through THE SECOND SEX, but I’ve re-read ALL MEN ARE MORTAL and SHE CAME TO STAY several times each. Her account of her journey through the United States in AMERICA DAY BY DAY was fascinating as well. Eventually I’m going to learn French and be able to read her work in the original.
I am an editor with Novel Needs, a full-service indie publishing shop.
