I write both fiction and non-fiction. I write my own stories and I'm a writer-for-hire. I read a lot of books and magazines and newspapers and blogs. I listen to podcasts and music and National Public Radio. I DVR both trashy and highbrow television shows. I LOVE Pinterest. I walk around parks and malls and cocktail parties with my eyes and ears open despite looking like I have no idea what I'm doing. Which I don't. But I want you to think I do. So scratch that.
