People often ask a writer why they write.

I write for a lot of reasons. Here’s just a few of them:

I am a card-carrying technology geek, having cut my teeth on BASIC on my family’s Apple II Plus computer. As a young woman with a passion for reading that equaled my interest in technology, I found science fiction titles were written with the male reader in mind. I didn’t want more space battles and buxom aliens, I wanted to know how technology would change our lives.

I write because nobody wrote what I wanted to read when I was a 13 year old girl geek with ambition and smarts and a heady passion for reading sci-fi. I write what I wanted to read, and I write it for all the young people out there who aren’t really sure what they want to be or who they are, but are eager to figure it all out.

I would love to be able to discuss with students the process I go through when writing, good writing habits for all ages, the role technology plays in our lives today, the role technology might play in our lives in the future, the details of the stories I write, and life, the universe, and everything. Or anything. Would you like for me to talk to your class or homeschool group via Skype about any of these topics?

Contact me to discuss details. I can also arrange discount codes for bulk purchases of ebooks on smashwords or other sites, please get in touch!
