As for the woman behind the Blog?

Well, when I'm not writing, you'll likely find me in hot pursuit of a good bargain sale, enjoying a sappy love movie, slaying my opponents in "Jeopardy", cooking, reading, "vibe-ing" to some good music, and embracing the simple joys of life.
(Though not simultaneously). :-)

Look for posts on an array of writing and blogging related topics weekly, in addition to guest posts.
