Bio: I am a novelist with an annoying obsession. I can't stop writing. Characters, plots and dialogue bombard me day and night, pestering my dreams and waking moments, until I put them to paper. As a result, I have more completed rough drafts under my bed then most women have shoes in their closet...And I own a LOT of shoes. So this year, I have decided to really push myself, to attend as many workshops, seminars and conferences as I can logistically handle (while on maternity leave), sprinkle in a few creative writing courses and then, when it's all over, attempt the last hurdle - approach an agent. We'll see how it all goes.
