Welcome to the World of My Quirky Mind

Arriving here, you already know the following: I’m a freelance writer, I have a penchant for the characters not everyone embraces, and I’m a little off-center myself – a trait I imbue in my writing (both the non-fiction and fiction).

Technically, I was writing stories before I could speak, but for the sake of reality, I started freelancing March 2020. I have a partiality for blog posts, articles, and editing. I also aim for more of the out-of-the-ordinary magazines with my queries. I am crazy for detail, dedicated to deadlines, and committed to adding my own twist of personality to each piece. In my spare time, I work on my fantasy and science fiction writing.

I hold B.S. degrees (how ironic is that abbreviation?) in Marine Biology and Ecology, and an A.S. in Veterinary Technology. Needless to say, animals are a huge influence in my life and writing. I am a “Mommy” to three awesome cats – Firefly, Squeak, and Tonks – and one darling greyhound, Juniper. They all appreciate that Mommy works from home where she can devote plenty of time and attention to their wants and needs.

I also volunteered at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington D.C. and the Virginia Living Museum. I understand the workings of the zoological field, as well as how to educate and interact with the general public (all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds).

I worked with military contracts on oil and hazardous response plans, insuring compliance with both military and EPA regulations.
