Author has written 15 stories for Romance, Love, Life, Friendship, Humor, and Politics.

"There are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are."

- W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)

So I make up my own rules for writing: I write what I know, and what I don't know I make up; sometimes there are occasions where I make up what I know and I know what I make up. Make sense? For me, writing is the expression of who I am - thus, I tend to switch abruptly between heartwrenching drama and light, comic pieces, because that's a part of what I see myself as: a complex, weird person.

As always, thanks so much for your comments and for reading. I appreciate that more than I can say.
