The Istoriaphile: Who's Writing this Thing?

It's me, book-omnivore, novice novelist and The Blogger Behind the Curtain.  Nothing fabulous, I'll agree.  Baby-boomer and born late bloomer, it took me thirty-seven years to finish college. I put it all down to an addiction to stories.

Other kids finished school and forgot about books for the summer.  I went camping and read the warning labels on bug spray, thrilled by all the words. In college, my dorm-mates went to the library to study in peace, right?  Bad idea for me.  I walked through the literature shelves to reach a study table and arrived with books that weren't on the teacher's list. This is probably why I don't remember a thing about science but I know a lot about Oscar Wilde.   Well, that's how my river runs.

I've worked as a paralegal for almost thirty years now, believing each case was another story to understand or solve.  But these are stories I can't tell! So, now I focus on putting tales I create onto paper.

I'm deep in the depths of revising a middle-grade historical fiction book and scribbling down my own story of losing more than 100 pounds. In my spare hours, I write copy for gas money and books, which brings me back to this blog.  As long as I write about books I've loved, I'm combining two favorite things!

You can find me on Facebook, Twitter, Google PlusGoodreads, Instagram, LinkedIn, Blogher and (now) ARC Stories.  If you want to talk story, come over and talk to me!
