I'm a (gasp) 30-something writer currently based in Shreveport, LA. I've been a professional journalist for 8 years and have had articles published in several newspapers including USA Today.

I've performed in the poetry scene in Houston, Austin, Wichita, and Shreveport. Although my roots are in poetry, right now I'm working primarily in fiction.

My latest project, a short story called Of Love, Death, and Marriage:

Dear Reader, I was taking a break on social media, as I do, when a Twitter friend who also happens to be a journalist wrote how hard it was to write when she’d been reporting all day.

The Last Single Girl (Romance)
2 chapters   —   updated Aug 01, 2009 07:49PM
Description: What happens when Cupid's cousin Fred travels all the way down from Mt. Olympus to tell you how disappointed he is with your love life? What's more, he tells you that if you don't fall in love by Valentine's Day, you'll be the last single girl on Earth! That's what happens to Marty Sandoval, a serial dater who puts men in two categories-the glamours and the bookworms. After an encounter with Fred during a speed dating event, Marty goes on a two week dating spree trying to make a connection, start a spark, anything that could reverse the prophecy from the Gods.

Bonnie Tharp I'd love it if you'd give "Feisty Family Values" a read. Based on your book list I think you'd enjoy it. Take care,
