I live on the Texas coast in a medium-sized town. Our home is on a bluff just a short block from the water. If a hurricane comes, we will roll down the shutters and ride it out!
Bachelor of Arts in English; post-graduate classes in creative writing (I considered going back to get my teaching certificate and did some substitute work at the high school level.)
Most of my work experience has been in the administrative side of healthcare with positions as a claims processor, claims manager, contract specialist and provider relations representative. For the last four years I have worked part-time for a large non-profit during their campaign period from mid-July until mid-November.
It seems I have always tried to write and mostly wrote poetry and personal essays. The only publication came from a few articles in a small free monthly newspaper. For the last few years I have been more ambitious as I researched the life of a writer/adventurer for a biography. The biography will be published someday, I hope, but it will be written by someone else. I wish him success. Currently I am working on a novel (more of a novella) and have several chapters in draft, but I seem to be stuck as to how to explain how the Texas Ranger will solve the murder. I keep lighting candles for my muse.
So to keep me writing I have started this blog as I need deadlines and purpose for writing even if they are self-imposed.
Thanks for stopping by!
