Author has written 3 stories for Romance.

I have so far only posted two stories, but I have several in the works. Most are romance, others are about life in general. I am a very observant person and tend to create characters out of people that I watch, but a lot of the experiences and situations mirror my own life. If you read more than one of my stories then you'll likely see some similar themes.

I am a food scientist with culinary training and I looove food, so I cook frequently for work and fun. Also, I have an almost unhealthy addiction to reading. These two hobbies don't mix well, although I have been guilty of trying to do both at the same time. I started writing after reading some great stories on FP that inspired me to put all the stories floating around in my head on paper. My husband tries to insert 'love scenes' into my stories at random and I've recently been trying to create some work of fiction from the hilarious things he comes up with.

I really appreciate reviews and constructive criticism is welcome. I would love to make my writing better and I can't do that alone! Thanks for reading...dc

You write to communicate to the hearts and minds of others what's burning inside you. And we edit to let the fire show through the smoke. -Arthur Plotnik, editor and author (b. 1937)

Canis Lupus is in progress and I'm actively writing chapters. Check out my flickr set for inspirations in picture form.

Crossing Paths is on hold until I finish CL.

Premontion was kind of a one off. I may work on it in the future.
