Stay out of my head, it's scary in there

My background is a battlefield of education and experience carnage. My curiosity latches onto a topic that piques my interest and I immerse myself in the research of that topic and once the smoke clears, there is often a certificate or a degree in my hand. The accidental casualty of a forever learner.  

My dark sense of humor guides me to write satirical works in opinion pieces, fiction, nonfiction, SciFi, and erotica. Inspiring thought, debate, and laughter in my work is my passion. If you do what you love, it's not a job, it's a dream-and here I am killing it.

Originally from the small town of Fremont, Nebraska I am the survivor of extreme culture shock after moving to Las Vegas, Nevada. Things are open after 10 pm and they sell beer on Sundays - it was emotional. I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice but never actually entered the field (carnage). I ended up owning a collection business specializing in HOA Collections. For those that don't know, HOAs (homeowner's associations) is a world fraught with controversy that I was able to thrive in.

Writing was always the gravity that kept my turbulent world together. Restless in my career and life, I found solace in writing and being seduced by the power that the right words can have, became a full-time author. If you enjoy my pieces or don't, I am happy to field questions and debate topics. You may always find me lurking at Starbucks or at www.musingaroundlv.com.
