I am an emerging fiction writer living in Chicago. While I am a Luddite, I am using the forum because I love to meet new people, especially fellow artists, and learn new things.

Anyone interested in reading my published work can access it through the link under the My Web Site header on this blog. My short story "Life Goes on Without Me" recently won an honorable mention from Conclave: A Journal of Chracter's 2009 Fiction Contest. I am currently working on a novel, new short stories, and a creative non-fiction essay. My friend T.E. Russell has encouraged me to write a screenplay.

And as always, I am still submitting, submitting, submitting.

I look forward to meeting and reading from you.

My fellow writer and good friend Tami's website

My good friend, fellow writer, and former college roommate Tami has a new web site. Check it out at This a photo of us "adding it up" before heading out for the night in college. Tequila and Mountain Dew - a very central Illinois cocktail as my husband commented. Yes . . . I've looked better.

Back to the bloggersphere

First it was teaching and writing and then I got sick with a horrid cold during my holiday break. To quote John Lennon, "Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans." All this writing I had planned to do during my holiday break. . . oh well. At least I always work better under deadline.
