I made silver and turquoise jewelry for almost a decade, ended up in nursing school, then took a master’s in business. Along the way I worked in construction, as a newspaper editor, a teacher, and somehow found a career working with computers.

As to my other interests, I love the outdoors, especially the Rocky Mountains. I’ve skied since high school, with one broken leg and one torn ACL to show for it. I’ve hiked and camped all my life. I love to travel, though I haven’t done enough of it. I’ve seen a lot of Russia and Mexico, not enough of England. Amsterdam is amazing, and the Romanian Alps are breathtaking. Lake Tahoe is a favorite, and someday I’d like to see Banff.

I haven't figured out if escaping into a book is completely healthy, but it keeps me sane(r). :)


Meagan Dunn re: your post on the request

thanks for the add and thank you for the comment like.

some people get an acquired taste for paranormal fantasy, while others just dont take the time to understand it. i was thrust into it. my freshman year of high school, twilight came out in the theaters and i saw it. i thought it was so awesome that i went and read the book (took me only a day and a half)... after i finished it, i had to to read the rest. when i read the saga, i thought to myself,"you know, i really am intrigued by vampires and werewolves and ghosts and aliens. i have to read more about them." this led to my love of paranormal fantasy... suddenly, it wasn't just for fun anymore. i read because i NEEDED to read. if i didn't read a little each day, i went completely nuts! i had to come to the realization that... i was addicted. and the rest is history.


Margaret Hoffmann Thomas Perry, Robert Crais, Cornelia Read, CJ Box, Lee Child, David Mamet, Elmore Leonard,..... all writers who make me want to read and to WRITE. (Better!)
