I've loved fantasy for as long as I can remember, and I've enjoyed writing since I was a child. During my early adulthood I developed an appreciation for diversity of appearance, culture, and personality. This appreciation became a passion for a message, the message of peace and cooperation between individuals of different backgrounds, the message that we should love and value our differences, not merely tolerate them. In 2010, my husband and I adopted an African American baby with severe medical disabilities. This was a demonstration of our passion, which has in turn lead to greater passion. All of this has fueled my stories. This, and a desire to laugh. I laugh a lot when I write. I laugh even more when I've forgotten what I wrote and then read it later.
