I'm a closet writer. I write when I get inspired and/or have a cause. I find it very therepuetic to write, especially when I'm angry. My family with the addition of a new baby (who just turned 1) and working full time keep me so busy that I don't write as much as I want to. I know that if I ever nut up and take some time away from it all, I could write a best seller and finally live the good life...maybe that's why I haven't. I feel that I'm now at the point in my life where I'm ready to see if my writing can move me to the next chapter in my life.

I don't really have any hobbies unless you'd consider raising well rounded children to be a hobby. I love music (The Beatles, Elvis, The Doors, Queen), I love movies (Breakfast Club, Ferris B, Jaws, Rocky's, Casablanca, It's a Wonderful Life, When Harry met Sally, et cetera.)

Thanks for getting to know me!
