Profile Information

I'm a first time fiction writer, as one has probably noticed, if one had read my first three very rough chapter drafts. lol. Really, I just enjoy it and I don't care about whether or not I'm good enough to be the next Stephenie Meyer or Suzanne Collins, although a billion dollars would be nice. People ask me why I like the Twilight series so much and I tell them, "look, Stephenie Meyer went to bed and literally dreamed up a scene for which she turned into a billion dollar idea, the lady deserves respect."

I have a few degrees, currently working on my third, just need to finish my thesis, well, I need to find the time to finish actually. I'm a history major and my thesis is about some past Native Indian family history that was important in establishing the frontiersland of this great nation, although it had been ignored for the last 155 years, people are beginning to take notice. Yes, I do side with my fellow American Indians when we preach, the Eurocentric whites stole our land. Our ancestors were he first environmentalists and if only the settlers had listened and had not been so greedy, this Great Nation, we call home, might just be a different place today.

I am predominantly a writer of the non-fiction fiction variety. Well, nothing polished and published and mainly they are college research papers on historical figures, but, my favoirte historical figure of all time. . . .  Isabella d'Estee, the greatest woman patron of the arts of the Renaissance, a figure very few have even heard her name; she was the Marchesa of Mantua. Her brother, the Duke of Ferrera was married to Cesare Borgia's beloved sister, Lucretzia and Isabella's little principality was only tiny state in Italy to escape the wrath of Cesares Borgia. Was it because he was being true to his sister? Or could it have been because Isabella was so gifted in the art of flirtation and flattery that she was able to play on Cesare's narcississtic meglamanical ways? I would say the latter, playing on those meglamanicial ways a few dozen times and winning every single time bought her freedom and kept her state intact.There are over twenty five thousand letters in the archives in Mantua and many of them address the relationship between Cesare and Isabella and her will to save her little state from the clutches of Cesare and his men. She was such a master in the art of flirting and falttery that today, she could have her own blog and youtube channel, teaching others how to do the same , , , just saying.

Back to my fiction writing. Although I am a first time fiction writer, and not very good. . . .yet, I do feel like I have some good ideas and have not quite learned how to master the art of writing those ideas into a story that someone might like to read. I will learn, I have patience. lol All I know is that writing is a release and if I can turn my corny ideas into stories that maybe someone will read then that is a quarter of the battle.

My other hobbies, include, watching every science fiction and paranormal series on tv and in the last 30 years, beading, a craft my ancestors always did, and sleeping, although not necessarily in that order.
