I have written this and that for most of my life. I didn't share those things with anyone and had secret desires to write seriously. Now, life is calmer, children have grown, and I am taking this time for me.
I love to read mysteries and science fiction, so Agatha Christie, Sue Grafton,Janet Evanovich, Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Arthur C. Clarke and so many others have given me so much enjoyment. But, to be honest, most of all I want to experience the joy I find in creating the work, in creating the other worlds, and the characters.
