"Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines." - Unknown Who I Am: A writer with a day job who lives in the suburbs of Baltimore with her boyfriend (Lee), fat penguin-like cat (Sly) and her ferret Vin Weasel. A Steelers fan camped out in Raven's country. A reader of just about everything I can get my hands on. My wordsmith idols are Christopher Moore, Stephen King, Jodi Picoult and George R.R. Martin, for starters. A woman who embarked on her forties still holding on to her 5th-grade, South Park sense of humor. What I write: Short stories (mostly of the 'horror light' vein) Some creative non-fiction and memoirs At work on my first novel, the story of an undead man-whore and the woman stuck dealing with his ghost. Why I'm here: For inspiration, ideas and the comaraderie of other writers.
