I'm a writereditorsocial networking manager living in Bakersfield, Calif. I am a freelance writer for various magazines, a -time contributor to Chicken Soup for the Soul, president of Writers of Kern, and I help others perfect their novels so frequently that my own would-be masterpiece just sits crying pitifully on my lonely laptop. I was also the editor of the nations first citizen journalism publication, The Northwest Voice. I am also a "haunter" -- I write backstories for haunted attractions and am "haunt mom" to approximately actors every Halloween.
