By day, I'm an office assistant at a small graduate school, and a non-traditional student, majoring in English and journalism. By night, I'm a clerk at a local newspaper. In between and whenever I can, I'm a fiction writer.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made Rice-a-Roni (at the age of 20), I decided to do it in the microwave. I followed the package's instructions... only to have the water completely evaporate, the rice burnt, and the smoke detector go off. I also scorched the inside of my ex-boyfriend's microwave.
