I make the best blueberry muffins EVER!


Background Information

When I'm not honing my culinary skills or working, I'm spending time with my fiancee, playing with my cats, writing and/or editing, and making jewelry. Obviously, I have many interests, but writing is my first love. I've been writing ever since I penned my first "story" in a spiral-bound notebook at age 4. When I was in college and grad school, I wrote more out of necessity than desire, and neglected my "creative" side, but now I'm back, and I do believe my writing is better than ever. The main influence on my writing style has been Stephen King's book, On Writing. If you haven't read it yet, you really should. It's informative and entertaining. I highly recommend it. Anyway, back to me. I write because I enjoy writing, and other people like what I write, that's just an added bonus. I don't believe I will get rich and famous from my writing (although that has always been a secret dream of mine), but I would like to get my words out into the world in order to tantalize/teach/torture others. That's the main goal of any writer, really, to communicate with others and elicit some sort of emotional response. I hope you enjoy reading the words I put out on this site and others. If you like my writing, let me know. If you don't like what I write, let me know that, too. I'll try not to be too thin-skinned. At any rate, thanks for looking, and happy reading!

Additional Information

I am currently seeking short story submissions for three individual contests (funded and coordinated by me): 1) Teen/Young Adult Fiction: Looking for stories written by, or for, readers ages 12-19. Submissions should be 2500-7500 words long - double-spaced, please. There is an entry fee of $10. The writer of the best story will win $75. Second-place wins $50, and third place wins $25. Fifteen to twenty of the best submissions will be published in an anthology on Lulu.com, and all authors will receive a portion of the sales profits. 2) Cat Stories: Do you/have you have/had a cat as a pet - as a friend? Share your cat's stories with other cat lovers. Stories should be 2500-7500 words long, double-spaced. Digital photos of your pets are welcome and may be included along with the story. There is an entry fee of $10. The writer of the best story will win $75. Second-place wins $50, and third place wins $25. Fifteen to twenty of the best submissions will be published in an anthology on Lulu.com, and all authors will receive a portion of the sales profits. 3) Our Heavenly Father: How have your relationships with your earthly parents shaped your views of God? What comparisons/contrasts can you draw between your Heavenly Father and your earthly father (or mother, or both)? Again, stories should be between 2500 and 7500 words, double-spaced. There is an entry fee of $10. The writer of the best story will win $75. Second-place wins $50, and third place wins $25. Fifteen to twenty of the best submissions will be published in an anthology on Lulu.com, and all authors will receive a portion of the sales profits.
