Whether you’ve come here on purpose, or landed here by mistake, I welcome you to my place on the web. Make yourself at home. The menu above will take you where you want to be. Or, in the least, it will take you someplace. I can’t guarantee you want to be there, but you might.
My books are all currently available on Amazon and other on-line retailers. This site is currently under construction. Links will arrive soon… ish.
Who Am I?
Hmm… let’s see… I am a lover of coffee (and once co-owned a local coffee shop), dark beer (the darker the better), red wine, and salted caramel whisky. My other drink of choice is water with ginger and hibiscus.
I am the youngest child of a librarian and a dreamer, both of whom taught me more than they realize.
I’m old enough to know better, but young enough to think I can still do it, which occasionally reminds me I’m not as young as the inner me thinks I am. Doesn’t matter. I’ll do it anyway. Age is just a number. I refuse to acknowledge it or conform to what people think I should be at this age.
My heart belongs to the dogs. Specifically Australian Shepherds. You can read about them on my Farm Blog.
I’ve been creating since childhood: writing, painting, drawing, photography… I have more muses than I can keep track of. That’s not always a good thing.
I’ve worked as a pizza maker, stable hand, dog trainer, pinstriper, freelance designer, ad agency account coordinator and designer, pre-K teacher, after school art specialist, manufacturing technician, barista, pet photographer and countless other things. Variety is, after all, the spice of life.
I embrace change.
I believe in following your passions, even if you have to split time with something else. If you can’t do what makes you happy, life is a sad, dull place.
I create to inspire, entertain, provide wonder, capture moments and essences, give form and substance to random thoughts, ideas, and emotions. Mostly I create because if I don’t I am a sad, angry person.
I have a sometimes dark, mostly dry, sense of humor laced with heavy sarcasm and wit. This is something not always appreciated by others. That’s okay.
I am not PC and probably never will be. Grow a tough hide and develop a sense of humor, people. Life is not fair. It can be ugly. People are shits. Find your tribe. Love them fiercely. You’ll get through it.
Following me on Facebook is your best bet. At least for now. I’m on Twitter infrequently. Apparently I’m not one for small talk. If you’d like to send me a message, please use the form to the right.
