I've been interested in writing since I was five years old, and have written poetry and several short stories.
It might interest you to know that I have a degree in Molecular Biology (an M.A.) and 50 credits out of 60 towards my PhD in Biology. Furthermore, I am accredited by the American Translator's Association for German to English translation and have worked for many years as a freelance translator. Translating from German to English has honed my writing skills.
I'm also highly proficient in art - drawing and creating sketches.
