Profile Information

Born to Scottish immigrants, my siblings and I are the first generation of my family born in the United States. That presented some challenges growing up in rural East Tennessee since the "accent" I adapted to at home was far removed from that of my friends at school. I had to quickly learn to differentiate myself when I spoke; if I was at home I used a certain group of terms and slang and when I was out with my friends I used the verbiage common to where I grew up. I believe having to use variations in speech on a daily basis is what gave me the love of words and language that led me to begin writing. 

I'm certainly not a professional; I only write for myself mainly or as entertainment for my friends and family. But I'd love to one day be able to make a living as a writer. You do what you love...for me that's telling stories.
