GeneralWriting meaningful novels, painting up walls with fancy designs, being with my kids and even the Cabana Boy when we ever have time. I also fuel a Trek/Sci Fi RPG on the Net that's a lot of fun.
MusicI have eclectic taste in music -- but I am a big fan of musicals. When RENT came out as a movie I saw it for the first time and it blew me away. I wrote one of my novels to it! Andrew Lloyd Webber rocks. I also may be the number one Steely Dan fan ever. But I also like Loreena McKennitt, the Indigo Girls and Elton John, among others.
MoviesCONTACT -- my favorite movie of all time. As a woman in a traditionally male field, I know what you have to go through to get the men to take you seriously, and this was classic. But she won through in the end. RAIN MAN is of course more amusing to parents of autistic kids as you go along. The Trek and Wars movies are great; Spaceballs and Galaxyquest may be better. :)
BooksAll the ones I wrote. HAHA. In 2009 I had a story each in A Cup of Comfort for Divorced Women and A Cup of Comfort for Adoptive Parents--check them out! 101 Little Instructions for Surviving Your Divorce: A No-Nonsense Guide to the Challenges at Hand (Rebuilding Books) (Paperback), which is my divorce book, is available online at Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com, or order it at your local bookstore. (Remember it's under Walton, my former last name)
HeroesEveryone who stands up for themselves against the odds. A lot of my clients breaking out of domestic violence situations at great cost to themselves. People who walk the road less taken.
About me:All my life I've wanted to be a writer, and now I am. But on the way, I've made a lot of friends and done some good for people. I have seven wonderful children, some more special than others, but all turning into truly great citizens of the next generation. See my writing and more at http://www.awalkabout.net where you can get my last book....until the next one comes out! Or see my law office webspace at www.mountjoylaw.com -- thank you, Chad!!

Who I'd like to meet:Robin Williams; I love his capacity to be in the moment, be totally unpredictable and cut right to the heart of things.
