I love to write, to think, to imagine…to create. I once read this statement on a plaque. “I love to think about the things that could be” and thought it was quintessentially me in a nutshell. I am a dreamer.
I am Native American. I believe in the spiritual makeup of this world. What nourishes it and me…for God is in the air I breathe, the water I drink and the soil I walk upon. Yes, I do believe in God. And this belief has opened my heart and my soul to find the desire that stirs a passion in me, and in this passion is my love for life…spirituality, writing, music, nature, laughter and of course LOVE.
For as long as I can remember, my head has always conjured up different worlds. When I was a kid I used it as a distraction and created story after story in my head. This certainly didn’t stop my mouth from moving along with the scene running through my mind, so to speak. I always told myself that creative people talked to themselves, it’s how we work things out. Or maybe I’m just insane and no one has told me yet…LOL
My other passion is music. I am an avid guitar player and have twelve guitars. My collection is eclectic and I choose them for their style, sound and soul. One of my most prized guitars is the 1936 Vega which was my grandmother’s when she sang in a country band back in the forties. But the one I play most, the one I bang on and create my own music is my Takamine I call Dolly. My music writing style is similar to Melissa Etheridge, Joni Mitchell, Phoebe Snow and Jewell.
I am also an IT professional and have one of those jobs that eat my brain on a daily basis, so I never really had time to read. But with my first Kindle I became a lesfic junkie which led me to an advertisement of a contest. To write a story and if chosen would be featured in a book comprised of lesfic short stories. So I thought I would try my hand at writing something captivating, romantic and steamy. I don’t remember the specifics of the contest, but as I began the story the characters took on a life of their own and that short story I was supposed to write turned into a suspense thriller trilogy called The Hell Hath No Fury Thrillers. Caution…these are not for the faint of heart and do contain some violence that a crime show enthusiast could conjure up and enjoy.
My current novel It's All Coming Back to Me started out as a thought about what would happen if a woman who had it all crashed and burned. How would she be affected and how would she change as a result of her handicap. It is definitely a romance with a twist that I think you will enjoy. And it doesn't lack all of the fun stuff that makes a LesFic Romance Novel so great. In this story, Laurel discovers that love always finds a way.
