I am an elementary teacher with a background in visual communication and creative arts. I have very eclectic interests that include reading, writing, and drawing. My interest in writing began about 2 years ago as a means ot taking mental breaks from lesson planning and grading. My favorite genres are ancient history, Star Wars, and light fantasy. I love work by CS Lewis, Tolkien, and Aaron Allston and have recently become a fan of J. Rowling, R. Jordan, M. Lackey, and K. Britain as well.
