This is probably my worst trait…writing an About Me. I’ve decided to take an unconventional approach and give you the real me; not some overly “look at me I’m so professional” individual.
I have been fascinated with writing for most of my life. I can remember vividly the very first thing I wrote that made me want to curl up with a pen and paper every day. I lost my mother when I was thirteen, and although I had love and support from many people, I was never any good at expressing my feelings out loud. I grabbed a pen and went absolutely crazy. I proudly displayed my first poem for all to see in my bedroom with a photo of me and my mother taped to it. It felt great and gave homage to my mother. I noticed very quickly that every time I wrote any of my thoughts onto paper I released whatever repressions I had inside. The more I felt comfortable with my talent (I tend to call it therapy but get scolded from others for not calling this “talent”) the more I felt confident to explore new ways to be creative.
I’m positive that, if you cracked my head open and exposed my brain, you would find a cinematic world; one filled with romance, thrillers, mysteries and lunacy. I can’t tell you where these ideas come from but the wheels keep spinning. My mind constantly conjures up the most ridiculous, far out, and honestly, some pretty cool stories. I decided one day to turn on my laptop and just start typing these thoughts out. Drawing Dead was my very first project. I wrote a little every day and soon my entire life was consumed with this story. The characters became so real to me and all I could think about was what they were going to do next. It was so exciting! I worked extremely hard on this book. Granted, it isn’t a novel which is my ultimate goal, however it is something that gives me such satisfaction. This is a huge accomplishment for me and an incredible start of what’s to come!
After Drawing Dead and the surprise of learning new and amazing things about myself, I can’t wait to dive into my next project! So, if you are just visiting my website because I made you or you just stumbled upon it, I greatly appreciate you reading. I’m sure I will get a lot of criticism for my About Me spiel. The readers that already do know all About Me know I won’t care what anyone thinks and that’s the real me. (Oh, and I guess I should add something like I enjoy spending time with my close friends and family, am obsessed with playing poker and have a great passion for writing.)
