I earned a doctorate in industrial-organizational psychology that has afforded me many opportunities to learn how all kinds of interesting people help make the world go around. Many of these heart-warming and heart-aching experiences continue to influence my writing.

I have also published a creative non-fiction article in Bottom Dog Press' Unbroken Circle: Stories of Cultural Diversity in th ...more

Like Kate & Curan from Andrew's Magic series, or Eddie & Susannah from King's Dark Tower series. In Lesfic, it is harder to find these kind of couples That's why I tried to build examples of such relationships in my books.(less)

Tough Enough?


did I toughen up?
scars so thick
a second skin
burned and burned
to begin again
I remember when
existing hurt
every day I lost my shirt
I had no history
so everything was
a dangerous mystery
but now...
did I toughen up?
metaled in
head armored
to bleeding heart
so foolishness
can't even start
I remember when
counting doubt
was so devout
I had no pride
so nothing was
on my side
but now...
did I toughen up?
or just, age out? Read more of this blog post »

“When you have nothing to offer said party, said party will take you for every penny and sell you a lemon if you stand there and try to close the deal. My advice is that it is not worth the hassle it usually costs you. This is what we call a walk-away deal...because you have to be willing to walk away from it.”
Lacey Schmidt, A Walk Away

“I could have a fatal aneurysm during out next orgasm.”

“I couldn't really discern any of the screaming lyrics, but I think the bouncy rhythm and their instrumental enthusiasm leave little doubt about the culinary joys of their favorite taco truck.”
