About the author: 36, lives in East Wenatchee

Occupation: Social media technician/administrator, writer

Author blog: Just

Q: What led you to write?

A: I began writing my blog the day I found out I was pregnant with the intensions to continue from that day forward, documenting my experiences and life thereafter. There are no holds barred when it has come to the writings about the funny things I see out in the world. (Note the disclaimer on my blog page).

Q: Why do you write/what inspires you?

A: When writing non-fiction, I enjoy entertaining others with the simple things in life that I find humor in. I am inspired by those in my life that cheer me on everyday, including my 6-year-old little girl who reminds me how funny life can be even on the days when it doesn’t seem like it’s that funny.

Q: Who or what has influenced your writing?

A: My personal life experiences influenced my writing. We write what we know: the good, bad, ugly, but for me…also the silly.

Q: How does the local area (North Central Washington) impact your writing?

A: The peaceful environment and the people here help me pull from my imagination what I need to put together great work.

Q: What is the writing project or work you are most proud of and why?

A: I am proud of my Blog that has a large following built from marketing through social media as well as assisting in building the visibility of Fuzion Mobile, Inc. I just finished my first novel and I absolutely love the story I’ve written.

Q: How often do you write?

A: I write pretty much everyday and love it!
