Writer by day, writer by night, in between I take care of two kids who insist I have super powers. Well, at least my little one still does, the teenager not so much. I run a mean 5k a few times a week, and a 10k now and then. Fixing up my hundred-year-old house is my latest craze - it's small and cozy and I wouldn't want it any other way.

In a former life, I worked in I.T. and managed million dollar eCommerce systems in the retail industry. Before then, I programmed in Java like it was nobody's business in the consumer electronics market, and I was a developer during the dot.com boom. Yes, I remember a time before Facebook.

Do I miss it? Sometimes, but not enough to give up time with my kids, writing, running, and everything else going on. To flex my programming muscles, I help local Mom and Pop shops create a web presence for their small businesses, and I give free I.T. support to friends and family when they need it.

A wanna-be parkour athlete with dreams of one day doing a full pull-up from an extended-arms-hanging position, I try to keep active. My 10ks will someday become a marathon if my feet can take the pounding. Aside from the two Spartan Races I completed, this city-girl's preferred method of running is on a paved road with the city elements.

Novel writing is my thing. I waited until a few years ago to give it a shot. That's another long story. Writing is hard. Period. But... no good thing in life comes easy.
