Welcome to my Life...

I love early morning thunderstorms - makes me all reflective and creative. And instead of putting that creativity to good use on my latest book, I've decided to write my first post. So, a little about me: I'm a wife, mother to a 5yr old, and aspiring writer of mainstream, romance and film. I adore books of all types and genres, and as a young girl (around ten or eleven) I had a peculair obsession with works by Homer and Herodotus, and TimeLife book series of any subject...strange, I know. This led to my fascination of all things mythological as well as human nature. And then I read 'Interview with a Vampire' at sixteen, and I knew what I wanted to do -- write my own dark, sweeping, funny, fantastical tales. So here I am in pursuit of the publishing dream, but more than that; to evoke emotion in my readers, to inspire them as I was inspired.

And on the flipside of that -- my darling child has just colored half the kittie's face with pink marker.... Welcome to my life!

Ah, the fun of being a mom -- don't you just know that when the cat sees her coming, he's screaming inside his head? LOL I know MY poor cats, do. Very cool that you've got your blog all set up now, Kelly. Now I can keep up with my favorite almost-published-writer through a fun blog instead of just sporadic e-mails (although I reserve the right to whine via e-mail whenever I need to, okay?).

I'm so excited to be able to check in with you now and then to see what you are up to! Since we live on opposite sides of the country this should help us keep in touch until we see each other again at a RWA conference!
