I hate doing these.  I’m the kind of person who prefers to let the work speak for itself.  I mean, what do you really need to know about me?  It’s about the writing, and if I want to be published, that has to be strong enough to speak for itself.

Well, I guess a few facts here won’t hurt.

I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada, though I was born and raised in Toronto.  Sometimes I go back to visit family and friends, but I love it too much in Vancouver to ever move back.  It’s just me and two cats sharing an apartment and the cats make sure I know how lucky I am that they let me live with them and pay all their bills.

I have a degree in English Literature, though I didn’t get it because I wanted to be a writer.  I’m a firm believer that a degree will not make you a writer (especially a good writer) if you don’t have the potential already.  Only time and practice will do that.  While I have not yet had my writing published (since I don’t count that one piece back in high school for our school literary magazine), I hope to rectify that this year (2012).

When Spring and Summer hit, I love to go out with my camera and shoot pictures, mostly of gardens, trees and flowers.  I’ve been enjoying sharing my fairly large stock of my own photographic work on this blog, one picture per post unless I miss a post.

On that subject, I definitely post at least twice a week, though three times is more common.  I don’t post more than once per day, but I will post if I have something to say.  Once I posted every day for a week, which was crazy but fun.  I try to respond to all of the comments I get unless I have absolutely nothing more to add, because I appreciate it when people take the time to share with me what they’re thinking.

I can’t think of anything else, but if I do, I’ll throw it in here.  For information on what I’m working on, you can check out my Project Status page, which I tend to update whenever something changes.
