I live to write fiction. I've been a voracious reader since I was 7 years old. Growing up poor with an alcoholic, bigamist, womanizing father in a highly dysfunctional family, reading was my escape. I was born a nerd. I have a degree in Applied mathematics and toiled for years in a man's world as a Computer Programmer, Software Engineer, and Web Applications Developer. Now, I mostly write, dance, and do Zumba. I satisfy my technical addiction these days by designing and creating my book covers, maintaining my author websites I built, and by making my eBooks, paperbacks, hard covers, and audio books. I love being an Indie author because I came out of the womb voraciously independent, a trait that puzzled my parents.
