Authors – “every day you are influencing someone’s life, somewhere.”

The Author Spotlight


Authors burn the midnight oil, sacrifice their backs, forget to shower, drink copious amounts of coffee, leave the garbage sitting in the hallway and probably aggravate the hell out of their spouses sometimes who insist that it is time to walk away from the computer and take a break.

I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
