Here I am in one of my favorite places to write: at home with my computer on my lap with my two warm dogs stealing my legroom.
I have been writing creatively throughout my life, from poetry to screenplays to novels. I graduated college with a degree in English and a minor in art, but I was also fascinated by plenty of psychology and sociology classes. Before putting all my focus into my writing, I was a Licensed Professional Counselor and registered art therapist, working at a mental health and substance abuse treatment facility and, later, a juvenile detention center.
My interest in psychology and healing is reflected in all my writing. I aspire to create real, imperfect characters who jump off the page. I have always believed the creative process leads to a deeper understanding of ourselves and our complicated world. So does reading. :)
