I earned my B.S. in microbiology (minor in chemistry – yikes!) almost 16 years ago but have spent the last 15 years working at home as a medical transcriptionist until recently leaving that job to concentrate on my 3 awesome children. I’m an avid reader and love “road trips to nowhere for no reason,” as my husband describes them, music (all sorts and always looking for new), chocolate, and dinnertime with my husband and children. When I’m not battling it out on the homework field, I’m doing laundry or other household responsibilities or (and this is kind of more likely…) I’m writing or studying about writing. I have several works in progress… a few stories that will stay short, a few short stories that could get long, and one long story that has turned into one huge project.
