A little bit about me.
I didn’t learn to read until I was ten (I have dyslexia. Yes I had to look up that word to make sure I spelled it right.) Naturally, I decided that I want to be an author. I l love to read and write. I specialize in Fantasy and Science Fiction, I have dabbled in Non-Fiction and Poetry.
I have mastered the dying art of bread-making. I love the smell of yeast as it rises and the way it fills my home with this warm comforting scent. (It smells like beer. Really That’s what it is.) It’s like being hugged by flavor. I especially love the way the dough feels under my hands as I knead it into loaves. (Or punch it when I’m upset.) And I get a thrill of joy when it comes out all perfect and golden.
Not this amazing skill of cooking has not come easily… I lit a bowl of instant Ramen on fire when I tried to microwave them. Turns out you should always add water to the bowl.
And the bread baking thing didn’t always work out. I have lit a loaf of bread on fire. It was sitting in the oven – the top burning. Good times. I have also started a grease fire when cooking meat. (Not a good time.)
I was in the military for eight years. I joined for duty and to escape from Utah. And stayed for the school benefits. I have a four-year degree in writing. And I’m currently writing and getting my Masters.
