I am a Notary Public, a Loan Signing Agent, and a freelance writer.
I worked many years as a paralegal investigating cases, making sense of facts, and writing a plethora of legal documents for attorneys. My seventeen-year paralegal career has helped me to 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.
These days, I write for the REAP Record, a newsletter for paralegals. One of my legal articles was published this summer in the Bar Journal, a publication for attorneys.
My short stories have been published in four anthologies and one magazine. I am also working on two psychological thriller novels, and I plan on compiling a short story collection of my published and unpublished stories.
I also have been successfully earning a little cash on the side writing online content, and I recently completed two graphics arts projects.
Finally, I have two cats, Buddy and Oliver, who love to help me write. Aren’t they cute?
