It took me a while to get here, mostly because I figured no one would get my dated Stevie Nicks references or appreciate my obsession with muscle cars. But curiosity won out, and I now consider myself a full-on Wattpaddian.

I am a big fan of writers sharing stories with other writers, both seasoned veterans of the craft as well as those just starting out. Writers are mostly a pretty supportive bunch and no matter what our level of wordsmithery, it's nice to have each other's backs. As for you readers out there? You guys are the bee's knees. 🐝

I love stories about imperfect people. Contemporary realistic fiction is my jam.

Marmite, that quintessential British foodstuff we either love or hate, is probably my spirit animal. I am also a lover of quality socks, am a stupidly early riser, a shameless eavesdropper and a huge animal lover. I love authenticity, hate pretension, and will be the person at the party hiding out in the back yard talking to the dog.

I've had lots of jobs over the years, the longest being a 13-year stint teaching high school art. Now I teach creative writing part-time, write occasional reviews for The Ormsby Review, and enjoy freelance editing on the side. I still like to paint, but I'm kind of lazy in that department.

If you made it this far, thank you. If you didn't, I understand; I do tend to prattle on.
