I am a paralegal who investigates cases, makes sense of facts, and writes a plethora of legal documents for attorneys. My sixteen-year paralegal career has helped me hone my analytical and writing skills.
Stroking the pen is my first love. In the nineties, I published poetry in small press magazines and won first place and honorable mentions in short story contests. Before home computers were commonplace, I designed and wrote a church newsletter. I penned a booklet of poetry and a few stories when I was a child, all of which are tucked away in my memorabilia.
These days, I write for the REAP Record, a newsletter for paralegals. One of my legal articles is slated for publication in the summer 2017 edition of the Bar Journal, a publication for attorneys.
I have two short stories out on submission, and I am working on two psychological thriller novels. I am also compiling a short story collection that will include published stories, and stories I have been unable to find a home for. Finally, it bears mentioning that I have a few other projects on the horizon; one copywriting and the other writing reviews.
Besides all this, I have two cats, Buddy and Oliver, who love to help me write.
