I started writing as most people do as therapy to escape a bad childhood. But eventually my life got better but I still loved writing.
I started out as a poet and I still write and publish my poems today. A few years ago I started writing fiction and joined a wonderful workshop community, I hope to start shopping my first humor novel to agents next summer.
I have a BA in English and a double minor in Creative Writing and History. I love reading thrillers, romance, poetry and humorous chick lit. Recently I've also started teaching myself book cover design and have been helping my fellow writers get the e-book cover they want at a price they can afford.
On personal note, I live in Kentucky. I've grown up in Kentucky. I don't recommend it. I was the youngest of eight kids and the only writer in the bunch. My favorite poets are Anne Sexton, Sylvia Plath and Pablo Neruda.
