I fell in love with the Southwest during a childhood visit to a relative in Flagstaff, Arizona. Later visits to ruins and a memorable kachina coloring book spurred a lifelong fascination with the history and people of the region.
During the twenty years that I lived in one Arizona city or another as an adult, I witnessed devastatingly beautiful sunrises and sunsets, experienced spine-tingling moments of awe, and came to understand the fragility of human existence. I covered a lot of ground on foot, horseback, and four-wheeling.
Brought up in a family of readers, at four years old I demanded that my mother teach me to read. Three years later, I had a Halloween poem published in the newspaper. Creative writing had sunk its teeth into me and never quite let go.
For a long time (300 books’ worth), making a living with copyediting took priority over writing, but personal changes and recent developments in the publishing industry convinced me to share my imagined worlds with readers as an independent author. I hope these stories stimulate thoughts, conversations, and eventually a new perspective on the real world in which we live.
I founded Wordsmith Pages in 2010 for my venture into self-publishing. Through Wordsmith Pages, I look forward to helping other authors make the worlds of their own imaginations come alive.
