Hometown: Fort Smith, AR
About: I am the author of the recently published novel The "Volunteer" about a college student who reluctantly agrees to be the central figure in a sociology experiment in public nudity in order to avoid the loss of her scholarships.
I grew up in Arkansas and Texas, and except for short stints living in New York City and the Denver, CO area, have spent my adult life in north Texas. I earned a master's degree in library science, but in the late 1990's, my hobby of buying computer components and building PCs from scratch landed me in the corporate IT world.
I started modeling for art classes at the age of 18, and I have kept it up as a part time job ever since. It has been over 30 years now. Host Regis Philbin was certainly fascinated with my nude modeling career when I was a contestant on the ABC game show Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in 2001. (I wound up winning $32,000.)
I've written stories since elementary school, and I wrote a few novels over the years, all of which remained unpublished due to my non-diligence in submitting them to agents and editors. I recently decided to take charge of my writing career, and my debut novel The "Volunteer" was just released in the summer of 2016.
