I am a intermediate school librarian in a small Kansas town as my day job. Every other waking hour is consumed by writing and reading. As a member of the Kansas Reading Circle I receive books to review and suggest to other Kansas teachers. This is a great opportunity to preview the newest books coming out from publishers for my grade level. Evenings and weekends are devoted to writing. I belong to numerous organizations including Midwest Children’s Authors Guild, Kansas Authors Club District Two, Oklahoma Writer’s Federation Inc., and Romance Writers of America, including the subgroups Celtic Hearts Romance Writers, From the Heart Romance Writers, and Mid-America Romance Writers. My critique group, Novel Clique http://novelcliquepress.wordpress.com has been invaluable to me the last three years as we’ve celebrated each other’s successes.
