I have just completed THE SWORD SWALLOWER'S DAUGHTER, a semi-autobiographical novel about loving people despite their failures, faults, and fetishes.
You may read chapter one of THE SWORDSWALLOWER'S DAUGHTER by clicking here.
When not writing novels, I exercise in the craft with short stories. Two of my stories have won first place in the Backspace short story contests, while a number of other stories have placed in the top three positions. Winning is fun, but the challenge of writing to specific parameters is a blast.

Everyone said I would be an artist when I grew up, but I wanted to be an acrobat. Not because I was good at tumbling, cartwheels, and head stands, but because I could spin. I was the best spinner on my block. I could spin and spin and spin and keep spinning when all of the other girls would falter and sicken from dizziness. I also liked how the word acrobat rolled around in my mouth before tumbling off my tongue. I never became an acrobat or an artist, but I sure do love drawing conclusions and spinning stories.
I heart art. I write. I read. I listen. I watch. I live. I'll tell you a story if you stick around.
We are so much more than the words we write, yet the words we write draw from everything we are.--Carolyn Burns Bass
Who I'd like to meet:
Anyone who puts their mind where their mouth is and their hands where their heart is.
Friendship today is sowed with electronic pulses that bounce off satellites and land in the cultivated hearts of like-minded people.--Carolyn Burns Bass
