Who am I? That is a good question. It is something I am still seeking to answer. In less than ten words: I am a woman, a wife, and a writer.
You think you need to know more? I am in my early forties (I know it is really hard for me to believe too). I have been married to my tall dark and handsome knight for seventeen years. Actually, he is not a knight. He is a teacher with knightly tendencies.
We have been situated in Eastern Ontario for the last seventeen years (yep, right after we married we moved). Before that we lived in Northern Ontario. No not way up North, but northerly enough to make these Easterners shiver. We are quite happy here. The winters are shorter and the summers are longer. It is a bit damper than we are use to but hey, everything cannot be perfect.
Our home is shared with a sixteen year old American Tabby named Suzie (pictured on this page), a twelve year old German Shepherd (pictured on this page) named Shelby, and a three year old rescued feral cat named JD (John Doe). And I should not forget the school of fish of various ages.
I have written for a long as I can remember. I started out with poetry, I am not sure why as I never had much exposure to it growing up. Most of what I wrote was depressing and I seemed to really like the word “despair”. In high school it was short stories. Regretfully, I only have one in my possession. I wish someone had encouraged me to continue on that path. There were periods of my life where I wrote very little. About eight years ago I left my day job (at the time I was a Manager of a womens clothing store) to work from home; further exploring my creative abilities to see where they would take me. It has been an interesting and totally surprising ride.
I have always been kind of a butterfly by nature so working on the Internet totally fits. Like anyone who works at home, I need to work harder on preventing procrastination and distraction. It is so easy to do something else — like organize the closets (if only I could channel some of that into doing dirty dishes).
If you made it this far, I am impressed. Please check out the rest of my site.
