I need something to keep me busy! Besides, where else can you sit around or walk around carrying on conversations with imaginary people or watching them do crazy things????
I fall in love with my characters. I think, and readers tell me, that my characters are so believable--the kind you want to sit down with and have coffee with (well, most of them). I've published, 3 books, numbers 4 & 5 are well underway. I enjoy interacting with the readers and learn so much from them. Feel free to contact me!(less)
