Writing is escapism, at its finest, for me. With three teenagers (a son and two daughters), I can hide from their angst (like 'he looked at me today...what does that mean?' 'Which shade of blue brings out my eyes?' 'When should I get married and who should I marry'...when they're only 13...things like that). And don't even get me started on the perfumes and scents they think are 'cool.' So I escape through other people's lives by writing. I write about people who have conflict, but at least they don't have to smell the latest scent out there. It's like playing with dolls all over again--giving them a life, problems, a past...and it all happens in my head, keeping me entertained.
