L. Darby Gibbs, aka Elldee: I love and write science fiction. Writing intrigues, charges and drains me. It makes me think, convinces me I have some depth to my character and challenges me to prove it. I write. I write every chance I get, and sometimes, when there isn't really a chance, I have to anyway.
I love to read and read when I am not writing and not doing all the myriad things required by life and bills. I like time travel books and books that show the human condition. I like funny romance, adventure and fantasy.
I've been writing for as long as I remember forever and perhaps before that. I'll always write.
I started on the east coast, semi-south, worked my way north on different sides of the country, west, east a couple more times, in no particular order. I've been south, prefer north, live west.
I am married, wonderfully married to a swell guy. If I say there is a problem, he fixes it. I love him for that. He never tells me I have a problem. We have a daughter. I am looking forward to being one of her closest friends when she grows up. For now I settle for guide, mom and only the occasional dirty look when I say, "No." She gives me great feedback and takes it from me like a professional. Love that girl, love her father.
I have dogs, great loyal, silly, serious, worried, attached Labradors that forgive me everything. My mom reminds me dog spelled backwards is God: they forgive always, everything, any time, any place, like God. I try not to test that theory. Forgiveness is painful, wrenching when you recognize and appreciate it. I avoid doing things I have to be forgiven for, so I have happy dogs that bring happiness into my life.
Basic bio: born, traveled, graduated, married, gave birth, live life – all while writing.
