I loved the Warrior Princess back in the late 1990s. I always like strong, empowered lead females in shows or in books. Xena rocked. She paved the way for heroines like *Buffy Summers* of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and *Sydney Bristow* of Alias, etc. Maybe they are why I decided to take up kick boxing and then Taekwondo. (=
Don't. Mess. With. Me. (I'd prefer hugs to slugs but don't push your luck!)
So for Halloween one year, I told my husband to make me a Xena costume. He seriously made it like it was no big deal-- because he is awesome. (I wasn't really this washed out... flash + scan-of-old-pic = GHOST)
Healthy, happy, and empowered mama...with a black belt in taekwondo.
I grew up in a big family in the Bay Area of California, attended college at BYU London, England and stateside. Then married my filmmaker/artist husband and have three sons who also love the arts. Creativity abounds in this house!
I'm a proud member of Writers Cubed and Co-Founder of the super cool and successful Teen Author Boot Camp. When I'm not doing my own writing I keep busy taking classes at BYU!
Life is good. (=
