I live near Austin, Texas with my amazingly supportive and encouraging husband. We have a teenage daughter at home and a son who's away at grad school. I'm a business manager for a forensic engineering firm by day and writer by night. My BA in Sociology has led to a special interest in family dynamics/dysfunction which comes out in my creative writing. Once a week, my daughter and I volunteer at a local food pantry that serves thousands in need. In my free time, I read, avoid housework, go to rock and pop punk concerts with my daughter, blues shows with my husband, and of course, write! Story is EVERYWHERE!
