A resident of Colorado (hence the pen name), I'm the Director of Operations for a professional modern dance ensemble, so deeply immersed in the Arts. No, not that kind !! Also the mother of two beautiful daughters - one of whom is as big a HP fan as I and has been encouraging me to continue writing. Just beginning to flex those creative writing muscles again, having been inspired by some wonderful authors, and the fire of my verbose & passionate Celtic nature. In fact it was my interest in learning more about the ancient roots of my culture that got me started with some of these stories - as will be revealed later. Sincere thanks to our Jo for giving us all such wonderful characters to use as spring boards for our own work - she's inspired so many of us to take the plunge into the waters of creativity. I WELCOME all reviews and appreciate everyone's comments and input, and am so happy when new readers lend their voice - and of course I am always so heartened to see my faithful readers are sticking with me - I watch for each of you, and when I see you pop up it's like a note from an old friend. Thank you all.
