Ahhh, the leisurely life of a writer...

Deep in the mountains of Southern West Virginia, I (attempt to) write the "Great American Novel"...and sometimes just a rather good regional story... 

WVWriterGirl and family.

Yes, I am a woman.  I know the name's confusing, but you'll get it, I'm sure.  Born in 1975, I have a son and a wonderful husband, both of whom support me (well, kind of...) in my writing endeavors.  I am a full-time writer and stay-at-home mom (for the time being) and still struggle to make ends meet and find time to just relax and be creative.  Writing is fulfilling, frustrating, exhilirating, draining, difficult, and full of joy.  I wouldn't wish the life of a writer on my worst enemy, but I'll be the first to suggest it to anyone.

For an author, writing should be like breathing; the writer has no choice.
