Profile Information

 I chose the pen name Inanna, the Sumerian goddess of resurrection. My own name means 'reborn' as well and I am at a point in my life where I need an actual rebirth. Like the name of my hometown, Phoenix, I need to rise, as the like-named mythical bird, from the ashes. I have always loved writing and art. I have written for the past 22 years (I'm 29 now) and have been told by teachers, friends and family that I have a gift. I don't believe in wasting gifts. I love having written. Sometimes writing can feel like torture but I have been learning some new things about the craft that I think will make it less painstaking. I was planning on being a teacher for the past two years. I have been working as a school secretary and office manager at a very special school for over a year. I feel lucky to have gotten that job because as passionate as I am about education, learning, academics, children and the future of education for the children of this country, I know now that is not where my heart belongs. My soul has always been stirred by art and expression. I have felt in such a rut lately and I need to take control of my life and that can only come from small steps toward change. Joining this community of writers and sharing is one of the small steps I will be taking to get out of this rut.
