Half of my week, I am a project manager developing IT solutions. For the rest of the week, weekends, and every waking hour outside work, you can find me scribbling away at many a story that just won't leave me alone.

So what do I write? Contemporary and urban fantasy have mainly been my playground, but I have done some real world settings as well. I do like mystery and have been reading (and watching) Agatha Christie since I was a child. I've also been known to do a bit of poetry.

Style: I have been told I do angst well, so if you want your heartstrings twanged, or your tummy to tie in knots until the end, then I'm your gal. I am, however

That's usually something like a plot point I can't work out, or the need to admit I've written myself into a corner and need to do some erasing.(less)

Today, I'm talking about The Mummy, that plodding evil creature that, in a lot of cases, wants to strangle anyone his master sets him on. I've seen mummies used in many a horror movie. 3 times in films entitled 'The Mummy', and I've also seen them used brilliantly in science fiction as well.

I've been devouring Sarah's Tassamara books with glee since I found them a couple of weeks ago, but initially I thought I wasn't going to like this third one as much as the other two. I was so wrong.

Jeff Horton Hi Sophie. Sharing some karma with you!


Jayleigh Cape Hi Sophie! Nice to meet you!

Jesse Hanson Thanks for including me among your goodreads friends, Sophie. Here's wishing you all success, with your writing and in all other ways as well.
I hope you won't think it too forward of me if I ask you to take a look at my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man. It's fiction but is inspired by events from my own life.
Namaste, jesse


message 2: by Jill

Jill Thanks for the friendship, Sophie. I also love Agatha Christie.


Jillian Peery Hi Sophie! Thanks for the add! Hope you have a great week!
