Contrary to popular belief, most authors do have day jobs just like everyone else. I'm happily ensconced at an advertising agency as an editor/proofreader. In my previous corporate life I've been a magazine editor, advertising copywriter, and writer of corporate marketing materials of every description. Writing's what I love, so writing's what I do. And I consider myself blessed beyond belief that I get to do what I love and get paid to do it. One thing many writers find is that they have little time for anything that doesn't involve writing (especially when there's a deadline looming). Not a problem really, since we spend most of our time attached to a laptop or a notebook & pen because we love it. But when I'm not at my desk, I like to read (when I can make the time) and sing in my church's choir and ensemble. And I've made some of my closest friends over crossed blades. My Olympic fencing weapons of choice are the foil and epée. Though nothing says fun like a good rapier & dagger duel. My husband and I have spent some great times with our fencing club buddies doing demos at museums, schools, movie premiers, the Biltmore House, and Renaissance faires. (See the photo page for pics from various fencing demos.)

I'm a member of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America; Romance Writers of America; Heart of Carolina Romance Writers; The Futuristic, Fantasy and Paranormal chapter of RWA; the North Carolina Writers' Network; and Broad Universe. I live in North Carolina with my always patient and ever-encouraging husband, two cats, two spoiled-rotten retired racing greyhounds, and a Jack Russell terrier who rules us all.
