in a nutshell...
I'm a walking contradiction: I prefer horror movies over romantic chick flicks (even though Sixteen Candles is still the best movie ever made). Anything by Duran Duran is my ultimate jam, but I am a loyal and forever fan of The Highwaymen: Cash, Jennings, Nelson, Kristofferson.
I'm a complete TV junkie...some of my favorite shows are Buffy, Fringe, Big Bang Theory, American Horror Story, and Bones. When I'm not writing, reading, or glued to the tube, I'm a part-time criminal justice professor at the local community college.
I love gardening and lazy days on the beach. Depending on my mood, I can't decide if I'd rather live in a small cottage in the mountains or in a little bungalow near the water. There are days I try to act professional, while other days I find just being myself is much more fun.

the (somewhat) professional version...
