I am not a professional writer, so I don't have a "writing career." :) Professionally, I work as an ESL teacher at an elementary school in Indianapolis.
I don't know if they are influences, but here's who I've enjoyed reading: Hemingway, Steinbeck, all novels by the Bronte sisters, William Carlos Williams, and Julia Alvarez. I really enjoy reading memoirs, from authors like Cheryl Strayed, Haven Kimmel, and Tobias Wolff.
I would love to get to know other writers, plain and simple, and to get inspired to write!
Hi, I'm just starting to get back into writing. I used to be a member of some writing groups and took a class last summer, but thought that this group would give me the opportunity to "make myself write" while getting to know new people.
