-aka- Wicked Dwarf
It’s my world, you’re just visiting…
Welcome to my world where the women can be more dangerous than the men who love them, the monsters can hide behind your best friend’s face, a normal life becomes a fleeting dream and the dead are just as annoying as they were when they were alive.
It’s a dark and dangerous place out there, so come on in if you dare. Be careful, keep your blades sharp, your gun loaded, and make sure your boots are laced because if tall, dark and wicked shows up all bets are off.
The first time I wrote a story it was after I came home from watching Star Wars: A New Hope at a drive in theater. Deciding Princess Leia was just not good enough for Han Solo, I rewrote my own part into the story line. Han was all for me, the tough female thief, and wussy Princess Leia could stay with Luke. Years later when I found out Leia was Luke’s sister, it kind of killed the story but others had already sprung up in its place.
My females can be intimidating but the men love them, even if they are a pain in the ass. Besides, who has time to wait for some guy to save you, when it’s faster to do it yourself? Magic, in all its strange and twisted forms, exists. Which means all those fantastical creatures we thought were only fairy tales, they’re real too, complete with fangs, fur and claws. Too bad it’s hard to tell who’s the real monster.
Adopted at the age of 14, I became the fifth eldest of 37 children while growing up on the Arizona-Mexico border. Heading off to college, I finally graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor’s in Journalism and three minors-History, English, and Theater. Shortly after marrying my techie geek hubby (who moonlighted as my best friend in high school) I completed a Masters in Organizational Management from University of Phoenix Oregon as bills needed to be paid.
Now, years later, I’m back in the Southwest where I’m out numbered in my own home by two Star Wars obsessed boys, one Star Wars obsessed husband, and an overly friendly 105 pound male lab.
Writing is what saves my sanity.
