…Brian and I love to tell stories. Short stories were my go-to companion from a very early age, no sweltering, noon hour naptime under the drone of a huge iron box fan or dreary, drizzly down-time sitting in a corner full of overcast spilling in through a rainwashed window was complete without a quickie from Ruth Rendell, Ray Bradbury or the like. Living vicariously through the printed page, following word strings in and out and over and down wherever they led made me wish that someday I too could tell a tale and give back some of the wonder that I felt. And then I got a job, got married, raised two wonderful daughters, and here I am still, I haven’t forgotten I’ve just been busy.
I look forward to meeting all of you.
