I was never that girl who had to have pink everything. In fact I wanted pink nothing! I’m the Orange Plume because orange has always been the color that feels most like home to me. It’s a color with myriad of associations that I embrace: enthusiasm, fascination, creativity and determination (Wikipedia). The idea of writing with a plume is such a romantic notion–traditional and beautiful. Hence, the Orange Plume.
I’ve discovered that life’s clichés aren’t always such a bad thing. I’m a wife and mother in the suburbs and I’ve never been happier. I’m an American Girl from Generation X raised in the upper Midwest, but a proud Colorado transplant as of 2005. Like the color orange, Colorado has always felt like home to me. I’m happily married to an enigmatic man (since 2000!) and the mother of boy/girl twins. I am also an identical twin so I have a lot to say on the topic of twins. I’ve been a follower of Christ since I was 7 and love to explore spiritual topics.
I may occasionally wear pink but some things never change. I’ve been a writer at heart since the age of eight. The adage “if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there, did it still make a sound” reminds me of the heart of a writer: if a writer writes and no one reads his work, does it matter that he wrote? I write because I must.
It is my hope that you will find some things within these printed “pages” that will move, inspire, or provoke thought and friendly dialogue.
