Profile Information

I got into the whole "writing genre" via fanfic for the ill-fated, though fantastic and much-loved television show, Blood Ties. I dedicated the better part of a year writing serial fics, drabbles, bites, and anything else that popped into my head related to the show. I practically lived on Live Journal, but despite the fact that the show's hey-day seems to have passed, I was already bitten by the writing bug, and have continued to write, albeit in my own genre. The experience, friends and memories that I gained during this phase of my life has been a TREMENDOUS influence on my original story ideas/characters, and I can only hope that by posting them here, that I will be able to connect with other very talented writers in the same way that I did over at Live Journal.

A chance encounter with the Booksurge site inspired me to develop several short stories into what I hope will become either full-length novels, or compilations of short stories. I hope that by placing the chapters here for mass review that I will receive valuable feedback that will help me hone and tighten the works to make them ready for submission in the annual Breakthrough Writer's Competition, sponsored by Booksurge and Penguin Publishing. To have my work published would be a dream come true to say the least.

I am 27 years old and have been in school for about 20 of those years, have a Masters in Anthropology, and am now completing the second half of my Student Teaching, but it seems that writing is what I love the best. It may have taken me this long to discover this about myself, but I hope that it works out. If it doesn't...well, needless to say I have options in terms of employment! I have browsed through the submitted entries on this site, and am anxious to begin reviewing everyone's work. I don't know where to begin with all the selection, but I'm sure I'll figure it out! :)

ME IN A NUTSHELL:

I live in a small town called Uvalde, TX and am as country as they get ;)

My three great loves are books, music, and film. My faves are Anne Rice, Tanya Huff, and Laurel K. Hamilton; U2, Red, Within Temptation, and Linkin Park; The Crow, Ghostbusters, Underworld, and Sixteen Candles.

I consider myself pretty eclectic in my tastes, and if I had to categorize my writing, I'd say it falls under the umbrella of fantasy/fiction/horror.

I received my Masters in Anthropology from the University of Texas at San Antonio in August of 2008. At the moment, I am earning my EC 4-8 General teaching certification. I've spent six weeks student teaching in a 6th grade Language Arts/Social Studies class and am thoroughly enjoying it.

I LOVE to travel, and have gone as far as China where I participated in an archaeological dig at the Han Tomb, and have even walked the Great Wall.

My temperament is sometimes quiet and reserved, but I am known to be impishly funny and quirky.

I love anything dark, gothic, macabre, weird, you name it.
