After earning two graduate degrees, practicing law awhile, and then working for the public school system for over ten years, I finally got a clue. I started doing what I should have been doing all along: writing romance novels! In hindsight I could see the decision was a no-brainer. Writing romance is the best job ever (although I also enjoy my day job).
When not writing books (or preparing contracts), I can usually be found binge-watching television shows with my girlfriend and kids and/or playing tabletop games, and trying to keep the cat off my keyboard.
