Although I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, I now reside in Florida with my husband and our “child,” a pug named Chloë. I received my degree in English literature and have worked as a special education teacher, an English tutor, and a writing consultant.
My fan fiction writing is confined to the works of Tolkien, and my favorite characters to write are Aragorn (particularly as Elessar), Gilraen, and various original characters. Generally, I write short stories and vignettes although I do dabble in poetry from time to time. Perhpas my most peculiar writing quirk is that I almost always write the last line of a story first, often months before I have a premise for the story itself. I keep a list of my last lines and let them brew in my mind; eventually, some of them actually find a home in a story.
My other interests include African-American literature, historical fiction, rhetorical theory, pugs (of course!), health and nutrition, and spinning (aka indoor cycling). These things keep me sane.
A favorite quote:
"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone. "It means just what I choose it to mean - neither more or less."
"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master - that's all."
—Lewis Carroll 1832 - 1898
