My work history is all over the place so I'll stick with the most recent. A decade ago, I was a cosmetologist at a high-end salon. In a single week, I quit my job, shaved my head, and joined the Navy (looking back, I was definitely in the middle of a manic episode). While in the Navy, I met my husband and we decided to start a family. I got out while pregnant and haven't gone back to work since. I currently homeschool our five-year-old son and am working on my BFA in Creative Writing. I am a member of Romance Writers of America and The Authors Guild. We have two dogs and when my husband, who is still active duty, heads out to sea, the rest of us spend time traveling between family members across the country.
Let's address the "mentally unstable" bit.
I have been diagnosed with a lot of different things. I've tried a lot of different medications, going holistic, therapy alone, and outright denial. My current diagnosis is bipolar 2, social anxiety, and PTSD though it hasn't been an issue for a while. In mid 2019 I started the meds again after going without for about two years. At this point, I don't foresee me ever coming off of them completely and if I ever claim to not need them again, smack me.
What it all boils down to is that I occasionally lose my mind. No biggie.
Currently, I am working on the Corsaw series. It is a five-book and one prequel/novella contemporary romance series based in the fictional town of Corsaw Oklahoma. Click on over to the Stories From Corsaw tab to get extra stories from that universe featuring prominent characters. A new short story is released every month. Sign up for the mailing list to be notified of their release and to get the novella, which will be released exclusively to those who subscribe (and maybe placed in a boxed set when this whole thing is said and done).
