"Polishing words for publication!"
Writing has been a passion for as long as I can remember. While the necessities of life mandated that I work in jobs that did not exactly fit my writing goals, I am finally at a place in my life where I can write 'till my heart is content.
I enjoy writing research articles, short stories, and screenplays.
