 About Self
I have been a Chrstian for a long time (no excuses any longer for going off the rails.) I have been involved in creative writing for the past six years. I used to be a prolific letter writer but I got busy. I teach Religious Education in High School and on any given day my mood swings between thinking it's the best job in the world and writing my letter of resignation. I am very involved in a small church, leading worship sometimes, preaching sometimes and leading a housegroup sometimes! I am growing as a writer and have had a few articles accepted for newsletters.
