What else to say about me? I’m a lady; I’m a writer; I’m… not really that great at describing myself… I love nature, my family and friends, food, dogs, children, music, art, computers, and most of all, I love life. I love to create stories and wonderful worlds; and I love to explore our world in search of inspiration which usually comes in small things. I would like to take you out of the reality for a while; to make you feel the power of imagination. Are you ready?
