 About Self
It has been my privilege to have been a member of Faithwriters since 2003, back in its infancy. Although I was always a wordsmith of sorts, and even obtained a degree in English, the serious pursuit of writing took a backseat when my career as an RN claimed the front one. Due to unexpected personal medical circumstances, my life goals were forced to change. It is this wonderful Faithwriters site that gave me the courage and support to stride forward into the world of freelance writing and editing. From book reviewing to Challenge judging, this is the place that has allowed me to grow and share in immeasurable ways (spiritually and as an author). I wrote a one act play that was performed by a local drama group, had a humor column in an e-zine for a year, edited numerous articles, dissertations, and books for others, and have published in several places. Without the safety, comfort, and integrity of a loving website for Christian writers, none of the steps I have taken to becoming a freelance professional would have happened. For that I am eternally thankful.
