Hi! I have been agonizing about how to organize what to say, because I have so much running through my head, but I figure we’ll start with an exceedingly bare-bones autobiography:
I am born (Sorry. My apologies to Charles Dickens; I couldn’t resist!).
Realized I wanted to write at eight years old.
Realized I needed to write at fifty-five years old. I’m slow on the uptake that way.
I am a native of Buffalo, New York. I have lived (in chronological order) in Rochester, NY, Summit, NJ, Oklahoma City, OK, and am now in Albuquerque, NM. Next stop? Who knows?
I have worked at a bunch of things: Cook’s Helper, Immigration Officer, Methods Analyst, Systems Analyst, Micrographics Sale Rep, Micrographics Systems Designer, Human Relations consultant, Personal Trainer, Gym Manager, Psychotherapist. Everything led up to what I do now: Novelist.
I have one child – grown, genius, gorgeous inside and out, great person. I know, I’m biased, but I’m MOM!
Enough about me. Next time I’ll start in on describing my creative process. If I can write a novel, so can you, if you want to. Getting started is the trick. We’ll talk soon!
