In 2004 I realized I wanted to do something more with my writing hobby.
I enrolled in an online two-year writing program and began sharpening my writing skills as a blogger and a freelancer.
Writing, for me, flows from the rich experiences I’ve downloaded throughout my life beginning from childhood.
I was raised in central Louisiana during my early years. Then my family moved west to settle down in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In my early twenties I left the U.S.for the exciting city of Hong Kong where I lived for nearly seven years. I served as a volunteer in an international mission organization teaching Vietnamese refugees. I also worked at a local television station in the news department. Hong Kong is where I met and married my husband (also American). We eventually left Asia and after living in California for a short while, we settled down in Portland, Oregon.
I currently work at a large hospital and have two teenagers with my husband Jerry.
My first book, Unladylike: Resisting the Injustice of Inequality in the Church, was released in January 2012. A sample chapter is available at Amazon.
It is an exciting time to be a writer where a woman like me can live a regular working life as well as indulge a writer’s life. I am happy to balance creativity with family and work. Writing is just one passion of many!
