Paper, ink and pencils have always been an obsession in my life. My mom wouldn’t let me eat sugary sweets, but she couldn’t stop me from drawing pictures of them. My dad taught me how to play baseball like a boy, but that didn’t stop me from writing about princesses being rescued by valiant knights.
I wrote for Space.com’s entertainment section in the 90’s and with my experience there, developed a deep interest in Mars and the idea of terraforming the red planet. This interest is reflected in a series of short stories about Mars available on Kindle ebook.
I like to think that I learn enough from past experiences not to make the same mistake twice. I fell in love with the first man that told me I was beautiful. My first marriage ended in divorce, and so I left the choice of my second husband up to God. He sent Sam. I call him my Hobbit. He is a deaf-blind craftsman and the best man I’ve ever known. I share tidbits of my life with him at my blog: With Closed Captions. Because of Sam, I am bilingual. I incorporate much of my knowledge of ASL, Deaf Culture and the many experiences I have into my writing.
My art is on several websites and I have a store on etsy. I think the world is full of magic, and I hope my art and writing reflects a positive, uplifting ‘modern mythology’ for all true seekers.
