At age ten I decided to be a writer. My friend and I were in our favorite reading spot, a small clearing in a wooded area with a blanket between us and a colony of ants. I hugged my just-finished book to my chest, watched wisps of clouds drift across the blue expanse of sky, and relived every precious moment of the story. Right then I decided that I wanted to write stories that perhaps would have another girl lost in a book on a sunny summer afternoon.
Since then, my professional experience has been primarily in journalism and non-fiction, but I do have one mystery published and am working on others. I also have written numerous screenplays and stage plays, and had the thrilling experience of directing one of my plays at The Trails Country Center for the Arts here in East Texas.

Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Wow! How much space is there to list here?
I love Noir films and especially like the Blue Dahlia and others of that ilk. I also like chick flicks and comedies and modern suspense movies.
On television I enjoy most shows that involve crime - Law and Order, CSI, Criminal Minds, NCIS, and I love Heros.
