Mythologist
I write speculative fiction short stories and novels and nonfiction freelance articles, blogs, etc. Because mythology and religion have such central themes in my work, I like to call myself a "mythologist," because when I world-build, I have to create the legends and myths of my world. Even when writing contemporary fantasy, I must delve into human history, legends, myths, and fables to niggle out those intriguing nuggets that suggest gem of possibilities for a fantastical world or culture. Writing is a non-stop learning adventure!

Personal
Instructor
I'm a retired Quality Assurance Manager turned writer and editor. (Guess there really is no retirement LOL.) I enjoy reading, writing, and spending time with my grandkids. I'm a Dallas Stars hockey fan and some Saturday nights you can find me cheering on my daughter at our local flat-track roller derby rink with the Dallas Derby Devils. I love to travel, do ceramics, sketch, and I collect cameras and pretend I'm a photographer. :) Oh, and I'm a native Texan, which only means anything to other native Texans. 
I teach writing workshops both live and online and very soon, will have ebook of my classes available for sale here on my website and in other fine establishments. I've taught writing workshops in The Netherlands: Amsterdam and The Hague, at Tarrant County Community College, at local writing workshops and critique groups, and online for Romance Writers of America (RWA), SavvyAuthors, and others.
