Who am I?
Basically, I’m a fiction writing science nerd, who balances Ph.D. work with my imagination. I love the way writing fiction liberates my mind and allows me the freedom to be creative. A large portion of my time is devoted to turning dreams into reality and the other portion to loving and embracing life. When I’m not writing, or trying to investigate the inner workings of the microbial world, I’m either binge watching Netflix, reading on my Kindle or painting. That or I’m either pretending to be a Master Chef with my husband, playing with my 5 dogs, or talking to my family and friends.
Why do I write?
My mind is a hotel and way too many characters live there. They slam doors, fall in love, blow things up and murder each other. Avoiding them usually results in multiple temper tantrums, slamming doors and silent treatments that inevitably result in writer’s block. So, I listen to them and share their stories.
Why do I paint?
To get through the writer's block.
To put into color what my words can’t.
When I paint, it’s just me, the canvas and color.
And I love that…
