    I hate writing about myself because it makes me feel conceited, but I suppose I could give this a shot. Chances are that no one will read this, anyway.

    Writing is, obviously, my life. When I'm not working on a project of my own, I'm critiquing someone else's. Sci-fi is my guilty pleasure, as is chocolate and pretty much anything else sugar related. Although I'm a perfectionist, I'm also a procrastinator--but I think most writers are guilty of that. Of course, I try to make time to write every day...but life has its way of screwing up plans, and I've finally learned to just take everything in stride.

    Current projects:
    • Three-book series
    • Blog – The Writer’s Guide (www.thewritersguide.wordpress.com)
    • Working for local newspaper
    • These forums, of course!
