I'm a mother of two living in the South. I play viola and mess around on the internet incessantly. Really, the most interesting thing about me are all the worlds in my head, and I hope you like reading them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
When I was in second grade, I decided to write a poem about insects. I happened to know that a "pygmy blue" was one of the smallest butterflies, so I wrote the following:
"The pygmy blue
As she flutters through
The sky, is very light
The beetle's very heavy as he lumbers through the night."
This was evidently a good enough poem to attract the attention of my second-grade teacher, who praised me lavishly for it. For years, I concentrated on poetry rather than prose. It wasn't until seventh or eighth grade that I started seriously getting into stories.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Well, the first proper story I remember writing down was a little comedy featuring our two cats, but it definitely wasn't the first story I came up with. Ever since I can remember, I've had running serial stories inside my head. It just took me until the cat story to realize that I could write them down, and make a coherent narrative out of them, and people would be interested or even happy to read them.
