I am a creative person -- artist, graphic designer, musician/singer, and writer. Only, I'd like to concentrate more on my writing. I am about 20 years past my own deadline for being published in any substantial way. I am single, a NC native but I lived for 20 years in Oregon. I am living in NC again now. I am also a Mormon.
Writing Interests, Goals & Published Works:
I would like to write mysteries -- cozies, a bit of suspense. I also have several plot ideas for some romance novels, some of them with LDS (Latter-day Saint, or Mormon) themes.

On the other hand, I wasn't always Mormon and I have a strong leftover hippie part in me that tries to get out once in a while. Writing is a safe outlet for that facet of my personality, under the circumstances. :)

I am a young 56, but one never knows.
