I live in rural Michigan; the mother of 4 (6 to 16), wife, & full time writer. My family is my center, writing is my passion.
As far as reviews, I am looking for areas I need improvement more than simple praise. When I review others, I tend to give the same.
I call myself a frantic perfectionist. I madly dash out my first draft of a story while it is fresh, then rewrite for years.
Obviously, writing & reading tie at the top of my list of interests. A close second is singing. I also enjoy a wide variety of activities: dancing, quiet walks, loud parties, movies, music, GOD, casinos, church, mushroom hunting ... etc.
