I live in Chicago with my husband, son, and too few pets (though more than the husband would like). I write daily with varying degrees of success. When not writing, I’m thinking about writing, thinking about why I’m not writing, or trying to figure out how I can squeeze in a few more minutes of writing before the end of the day. For a little balance, I also enjoy reading, movies, cooking, and hanging out with friends and family. In past lives, I’ve been a massage therapist, belly dancer, and office manager. I don’t recommend the office management.
