One trouble with speed-reading skills is that by the time you realize a book is boring you've finished it. - Franklin P. Jones


Background Information

I was born and raised in the Northeastern part of the U.S. and moved around a lot as a child, I went to six different schools in 12 years. One of the things that helped me deal with constantly being the "new kid" was being creative. I have always loved to write, take pictures, draw, and in general be creative.


After high school I tried college but it just didn't work for me. I preferred to learn things "hands on". I also love meeting new people and experiencing new challenges. So I went to work and have been working in retail for over 22 years now. I have two beautiful and sweet daughters, ages 14 and 10, who are my reason for living.


Several years ago I became a massage therapist and after working primarily with people with debilitating/chronic pain issues and injured athletes, I wanted to further my education to specialize in this field. However, a serious neck injury has halted that, ironic huh? I still do it, but because of my injury I can't do it full-time, possibly ever again.


The one thing consistent, through all life's ups and downs, has been my creative expression. I guess you could say that, aside from my children of course; expressing myself through writing, photography, and art in general, are my passions. I consider myself to be an amateur in these areas, but talented none the less.


So now that my children are older and not requiring my attention 100% of the time, (as any of you with children know.....its now 200% hehe), my goal is to pursue a career in writing and possibly photography. So I've been reading, researching, learning about different styles/formats, and in general soaking up as much knowledge I can in all areas of the creative arts; and loving every minute of it!

Birth Place
Philadelphia, PA US
Accomplishments

I have my blog which I write in as much as I can. I have also joined other websites and am in the process of putting my writing up on them. However, I have yet to be published.
