About Me

(Photo Credit: Amy A. Ward)

At a later age than most, I discovered a love for reading and, subsequently, writing. So, I dove in up to my eyeballs and am frantically trying to make up for lost time. I’m actively involved in the writing communities in and around my current home in Moore, Oklahoma. I’m 2nd Vice President (Membership) of The Oklahoma City Writers and Pitch Room Chair for the Oklahoma Writers’ Federation. I still stay in touch with the writing community back home in Dayton, Ohio, too, and even Skype in twice a month to meet with my critique group, The Plot Sisters.

My day job is a contract specialist with the federal government, but my passion lies with writing. Growing up, I also loved science (still do), especially astronomy and earth science. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Science Education, and have earned teaching certifications in several science fields including physics, astronomy, and earth science. You’ll find these sciences laced into my writing. I’ve also earned a Master of Science in Business.

I’m curious about anything beyond this physical world such as aliens, reincarnation, and psychic abilities, making them among my favorite writing topics.

When not working on my writing or government career, I enjoy spending time with my daughter and son-in-law (Destany and Larry), my two dogs (Sophie and Ellie), and, especially, my new baby grandson (Ison).
