The Rock of Realm:
Young Adult Fantasy
The Muse On Writing
What can I say? I'm a very busy gal...and loving it!
I was born in Montreal, Canada and writing as far back as I can remember. I didn't seriously start up again until 2000, when I picked up my first Writer's Digest magazine in a very long time. Within three months I had written my first screenplay, and the below accomplishments are just some of the many endeavors I find myself in. And between you and me, I love this writing world.
