Biography

I am a hippie who is just discovering what life really is. My heart is entrenched in novel writing. I am pursuing a dream of being a full-time novelist. It’s the beginning of a journey that I have always dreamed of. I have risen from a dark childhood of domestic violence. I faced that monster in my closet and am now writing about it. I watched my mother be tortured for almost ten years. I stood before the remnants of the house her ex burned down in a drunken rage. I lived with the aftermaths and the damage it did in the years that followed. Now, I am chasing dreams and living my life to the fullest. Through my writing I want to be an advocate against domestic violence and child abuse, to speak out and be a voice.

    I enjoyed reading this one...only thing missing for me that I was disappointed about was Kara going down on on her co-worker. That scene would complete this great sexy little story.
