Hmm…it’s so easy writing character synopses than what it is to summarize me up in a bio. I have always had a passion for words. When I was little my kindergarten teacher had a parent-teacher conference with my mom wanting to put me in an accelerated reading program. She noticed how I picked up books and made up stories to the pictures in them. From that point, I flourished with words. I was always reading and always writing. I started writing creatively in elementary school, however, it was many years later in high school that it became a passion of mine. Once I graduated high school, I became enthused by occultic matters (furthering another childhood passion) and began writing with Nancy Chandler on her Trinitarian Wicca pieces.
All things fiction has always been my thing, reading it, watching it, and writing it. I lost all inspiration when my mother passed in 2009. I was 20 years old, soon to turn 21 in two weeks (which was our shared birthday, my birth was her birthday present.) I was 2 weeks from finishing my last semester of college and it hit me hard. So hard, that I lost interest in everything I had passion about. My whole life was put on hold even though the years whizzed past my head. After six years of numbness, and hitting a solid 27 years old, a tidal wave burst through the built dam and I began writing again. I started back on the projects with Nancy Chandler with her long-awaited return of my play of words. I recently just got started back into the fiction and my first piece is fan fiction for the Wizard of Oz called The Wastelands of Oz. You can find a summary of it in my writings in progress page. I have completed the first draft and I’m deep into edits with it. I have 12 or more novels floating around in my head to write but getting this one out was the most important task. I have two self-published poetry books on amazon kindle. One was written this winter.
The base of it is really all the pent-up darkness and brooding I’ve dealt with over the course of six years and finally accepting the pain as opposed to being numb to everything. The second one is a poetry/lyrics book. I was heavy into lyrics writing while I was younger, which went out the door as well when my mother passed. The floodgates have opened up and I have been using all the anger, all the pain, all the sadness, and all the built-up depression I have clung to for years to fuel my writings.
