Writer Bio

I attended Clarion in 1984. Since then I have written off and on, submitting several short stories, most which were "Thanks, but No Thanks", although I did get a few favourable Rejection letters, and even a request for a re-submission (which was subsequently rejected). Over the years I have not actually spent much time WRITING, although a fair amount of time has been spent on PLOTTING. I prefer writing novel length - I just don't think in short story length when I am coming up with ideas. 2018 Update: Over the last 35+ years, I have plotted and planned and partially written dozens of stories. One in particular has been in development for that entire time. It's only been in the last 20 years or so that I have used a computer in my writing, so everything done prior to that was typed. I recently took a look at the binder containing the typed portion of this one story, realized that it was pretty close to 200 pages, with another 50 or so on my laptop. So, not only was this story not just a single novel, but a duology, BUT the first novel was actually FINISHED!!!!! I have actually completed my first novel! What a rush!!! It's now being transcribed and edited, and will soon be independently published through Prairie Owl Publications. Yay me!!! :) Am currently around 8000 words into a new story, and still going strong! Every time I sit down at the computer to work on it I am able to add anywhere from a few more sentences to a few more pages (or more), depending on how much time I have at that moment!

Writing Style

Chaotic!!!!! (sorry - couldn't resist!) Still Chaotic - but I write much more frequently these days!

Writing Goal

My goal is 400 words/day, which Would be 12,000 words by Aug 4th. For 2018 I will be working on a post-apocalyptic supernatural-fantasy hybrid story. Watch for excerpts!

Fundraising Goal

My goal is to raise $500 for the Write-a-Thon. I would like to get pledges up to $30/person towards the completion of my Writing Goal of 12,000 words between July 2nd and Aug 4th.

writing goal:
