Writer, photographer, classical singer, and marathon reader. Lucky to have the best husband in the world. I would be the crazy cat lady if I wasn’t married; thankfully, I’m only one half of a crazy cat couple.
When I don’t have my head stuck in a book, I serve as the Registrar of a professional regulatory organization and have the great fortune to work with a fantastic group of staff, volunteers, and members. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature, a Bachelor of Professional Arts in Communication Studies, and a Certified Association Executive designation in Association Management. I’m also working on a Master of Arts degree with a focus in Cultural Studies.
I am eternally grateful to Athabasca University’s Voice Magazine for publishing some of my early attempts at fiction and non-fiction and giving me the confidence to keep sharing my writing when no one “booed” me off the page. Likewise, to local writers in Edmonton–in particular, Linda Wood Edwards and Jannie Edwards–for sharing their wisdom and kindness in reviewing my work.
I’ve tried to blog a few times, featuring my photography on one, writing about topics in literature and communication studies on another, and exploring the life of my late grandmother in my last effort, but found it difficult to stick to one theme.
This time, anything goes. Writing is what makes me feel alive and happy and complete. Although I have taken Emily Dickinson’s famous poem out of its original context for the title of this blog, when I write I do feel like I “dwell in Possibility.” Anything can happen!
If you stop by, I hope you find something that interests you. Feel free to leave a comment and start a discussion!
