I've been quietly shooting arrows at narcissism for seven years. As my aim gets better my health improves and my kids get happier. I write to shed light on the difficulties of dealing with narcissism, and I also show the good side of life after divorce.
Describe your desk
My desk is a purple drop-leaf table that I inherited from a sister-in-law who has great decorating taste. Right now the table holds a sewing machine, a pin cushion made out of a baby food jar containing sand and shells from Maui, library books, gold drachmas that my daughter made out of cardboard and a large mug of slightly warm coffee - black.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on the east slope of the divide in Montana where the wind blows (gusts) most days. It's easy to find quiet (well, when it's not too windy) in our state, and quiet lets my imagination run amok.
