I began writing just a couple of years ago. There were many ideas in my head and I wasn't telling the world about how I felt on different subjects. I had become quite depressed and found that writing helped me get my mind off of things that caused this depression. Instead of acting out my aggressions, I now put them down on paper giving me a true satisfaction.
I have chosen to write dark fiction. It is a genre that I enjoy and it fits my needs of writing. I have written a novel called Keeper. It expresses the demented thinking of a poor individual that has chosen to take matters into his own hands and punish members of a well known secret society. It is a murder mystery and also my first attempt at serious writing.
My background is not that of a trained writer. I was a Registered nurse for a period of 16 years. Being in this profession has given me an unbelievable background of experience that I tend to draw upon for my writings.
I am also a professional truck driver which gives me another background to refer to when I am writing. I base a lot of my characters on people that I have met or have observed in truck stops. A very interesting group of individuals.
