About Me

Hi and welcome to my blog!

This is where I showcase some of my writing.

In the Beginning…

I’ve been writing ever since I was about eight years old. Just for myself.

Well, until I was about eleven or twelve, I guess.

I had started a story loosely based on our neighbors next door. (When you cut the downspout off of your house and try to use it as an exhaust system on your car, well, the stuff practically writes itself!

Anyway, one of my friends found my notebook and read it. She recognized the characters, of course. And she showed all the kids in the neighborhood.

Pretty soon, I had a 3:00 p.m. deadline to meet every day, because that’s when the kids would start showing up, waiting to see what I had written next. I had to start writing on individual sheets of paper so that they could be passed around for everyone to read.

The Internet Arrives

About a million years ago, the only way you could start a blog was if you went through Yahoo. Are they still around?

That was my first blog. I have no idea what it was about.

There have been many since.

My most successful was started around 2007, I think and was called An ADD Woman. Pretty self-explanatory, and yes, I have ADHD.

I sold that blog a few years ago because I was just done. I had written about ADHD every day for about twelve years and I thought it was time for a new voice.

I am a Writer

You may have figured that out by now.

What I haven’t figured out is what I write about.

Like most people with ADHD, I have a lot of interests and know a little bit about a lot of things.

This blog – and a few other things – are helping me figure out what I like to write best.

I’d love it if you would leave me a comment and tell me what you like to read about or want to know more about.

In the meantime, here are some places you can find me:
