About Me
I've had a love affair with books from a very young age. In the 7th grade, my teacher challenged the class to read one book a month and write a one-page book report on each book for a little extra credit. She had to have a parent-teacher conference with my father because I ended up reading over 10 books each month...skewing my grade and giving me a tremendously unfair advantage.

When I am reading, I become the story and the story becomes me. I internalize it and it blossoms into something that is real and tangible. I breathe it, I dream it, I obsess over it and allow it to whisk me away.

I am an amature writer in my personal time and a copywriter in the professional world.

Words amaze me. Grammar and sentence construction rope me in. Everything about the written word caresses me intellectually. I am working on a fiction book in my spare time that I hope to one day see published. In the meantime, I am here...learning, growing and enjoying the beauty of Words.

Favorite Word:

annihilation
I fell in love with this word as a teenager. I rarely have an opportunity to use it in my daily life. The word "annihilation" is unmistakable. It is graphic and telling, in your face and at the same time, the word feels almost sensual as it rolls through your mouth when it is spoken. There is no question, no hesitation as to the intended meaning when this word is used. Perhaps I love it because it is so unforgiving, unyielding. The exact opposite of me.
