I've been a self-employed working novelist for the past twenty years. Thanks to e-publishing, my titles are for sale all over the world, and so far, in English, Spanish and German.
I also make jewelry and I'm a fine needlework artist, specializing in embroidery, thread crochet, and sewing. I love to cook, read, entertain friends, decorate, and pursue various crafts.
I live in the Pacific Northwest near the Columbia River, still within 10 miles of my old high school. I have one Great Pyrenees dog and an old girl I rescued from the shelter who's kind of blind and a little hard of hearing, and one cat. My chickens all went to that great coop in the sky so replacements will be in the offing after we reinforce their worldly coop here in February. My hours are kind of goofy--I'm just not a morning person and tend to be up late when the rest of the world is sleeping--and QUIET. No phones, faxes, distractions. Just the kids and me, candles burning, and the elevator music coming out of my iPod.
Before I made the leap to full-time writer, I spent about 12 years working for consulting civil engineers. Riprap, anyone? How about a nice detention pond?
