In my mundane life, I'm a wrangler of teenage readers and writers--aka, a highschool English teacher. I am also a mother of four wonderful children. As of this writing, they are aged 20-28, three girls and one boy, and I could not be prouder to be a part of their lives. I'm a reader and writer, two time Honorable Mention winner of the Writers of the Future contest. In general, I'm just an all around geek and socially awkard child of the 80s. And that is what an active imagination is for.
