In short

  • I am the mom of 3 children who are almost grown. My oldest is in collage and is a published writer. My 2nd is going to be junior this year, and my youngest is starting high school.

    I have had a verity of jobs over the years including daycare, tele-sales, and most recently working for a magazine. I am currently running my own business and loving it.

    I have never been published, but I often get complemented on my ability to write. I have 1 poem that I am particularly proud of, which I will be posting here soon, and I have 2 novels in my head, which I plan to start on right away.

    If you get a friend request from me and you have no idea who I am, that means that I like your work enough to want your opinion of my work. I am currently working hard on Erotic Novel and I am desperate for good feedback as I go. Of course, I think it is a great idea - but my idea of good is often not the opinion of the crowd, so please help me out here. If you have any interest in reading Erotica or experience writing on the topic of sex; I really would love to have your opinions and suggestions.

    Now, I have to say this - really I HAVE to say this. I am not trying to be rude, mean or otherwise.... but I have become very tired of people getting their feelings hurt over a 4 star rating or a 5 star rating.... I have seen behavior on here that I find very childish. Really, with many of the people, it is like "I will give you 5 stars if you give me 5 stars, but if I give you 5 stars, then I expect 5 stars in return and I will turn you in to the project leader if you give me 4 stars"

    This star rating is not what I am about. I don't like to give a star rating on works that I don't personally like, because my personal taste is not important here. I will give constructive criticism and suggestions -- but it is YOUR choice whether or not to change your work.  Likewise, if you have something that is helpful, then I want to hear it.... really, I do... but I may not change my work.

    I write totally for me.... if you say, "Change this is and I will up my rating", then you are just going to annoy me. My self-value is not determined by the number of stars I get here. Many people will not like my work. Really... a lot of people wont...and that is OK.

  • None, I am practically invisible.
