About Me
Author of 14 books in 3 genres, owner of Elucidate Publishing, I'm an indie with a lot of interests and a psychology degree that adds to my cultural and societal stories with very deep characterization. I've been working at the craft for nearly 20 years on top of the many childhood years of creative writing and art and music study. My family comes first and I'm a mother of two as well as a new grandma, but a writer is who I am inside. On to the next...
Type of Writer
~Literary Romance with an Artsy Twist~ I write novels and short stories and dabble in poetry and children's fiction.
Writing Style
Mainstream with strong romantic elements, dialogue strong, deep characterization that borders on stream of consciousness.
art, music, gardening, swimming, boating, travel, photography, Harley rides, learning, talking about those things we're not "supposed to" talk about *Wink*
