A writer is all I ever wanted to be.  I “wrote” my first story before I could actually read, or write.  I dictated it to my mom, and she wrote it down.  She then folded the sheet of paper into a little quattro, and I illustrated it.  She still has it.

I sold my first short story shortly after I got out of college.  I wrote off and on, but sadly I lost most of those early efforts to Hurricane Katrina.  My journals, too.  I hadn’t wanted to believe it would be that bad.  Well, Hemingway also lost all his early stories in a suitcase lost at a train station, and ultimately he felt having to start over again made him a better writer.

After a long hiatus post-Katrina and graduate school I have started writing again.  I write science fiction and fantasy.

I am a librarian by trade, and live in New Orleans, LA with my husband and three cats.  I am a proud member of the New Orleans Science Fiction and Fantasy Writer’s Circle at the Jefferson Parish Library.
