Like something tapping on the inside of my skull, words, ideas and stories have always demanded I find a way to bring them into the world. As a child, I told them to myself or acted them out. As soon as I learned to write, they started coming into the world in that way. And in 1986, my father brought home a TRS-80 computer with the program Scripsit, and at the tender age of seven, I began pecking my stories out on a keyboard… and have never really stopped.
Today, I’m also a wife and mother with two sons in elementary school. Though years of momming, housekeeping and advertising contract work have heavily spent my time and energy, my muse refuses to quiet down.
Professional editors would say I’m meticulous about word choice, sentence construction, grammar and the elements of fiction such as world-building and proper handling of exposition. But readers in my audience experience my writing much the way a swimmer would slipping into the waters of personalized pool. The pumps, heaters and jets make the water the right temperature, clarity, etc., but the swimmer only knows the bliss of the sensation. The mechanics of my writing do the same thing working as invisible systems to perfect the experience for readers swimming in my words.
From July of 2018 to July of 2019, I published more than 169-K words of my poetry and fiction. More than 148-K of those make up what I’m now calling my “patron archive” available only to my upper-tier patrons. While I continue to churn out 20+ text and 12+ audio posts every 12 months for all of my patrons, the bulk of my work is waiting in my “All-Access” tier level, everything from short poems to my longest in-progress novels. This tier unlocks the most and the best of what I had written for more than 15 years before coming to Patreon. It's the dance, the deep water, the dessert!
My patrons literally make possible the process of bringing the ideas that are still ever tapping at the inside of my skull into the world. I am so grateful for them, and I LOVE serving them. If you like what you read, I hope you’ll support me.
