Writing

Welcome to the workshop. Here I'll be putting updates on the writing front.

So, a little about me. I am a writer of contemporary romance, new adult romance, and fantasy of manners who also dabbles in poetry. I once tried historical romance but that was a LONG time ago.

I'm an active member of my local RWA chapter (LERA- Land of Enchantment Romance Authors). As a former laboratory chemist turned puppy wrangler and Middle school substitute teacher, I have an endless supply of drama and character traits to draw on later after a long day of keeping my charges from doing what they shouldn't.

And I wouldn't want it any other way.

Okay, on to my works. This will be me trying to keep tabs on what I've done and where I'm going.
