When I'm Not Writing
When I am not writing, I am writing. By this I mean that I also work as a freelance copywriter, doing advertising, magazine, script, and public relations work. (Everything feeds the fire, write? I mean, right?) Also, when I’m not writing, I’m often reading . . . and I believe that reading is a kind of writing, since I’m often voicing my internal opinions in a kind of coversation with the book in my hands and the author.
And in addition to all this, I’m the mom of two kids I adore, and the husband of the photographer, Greg Schreck (also adored by me). In various combinations with these people and my friends, I love to: watch movies, go to museums, plays, and dance programs, travel, eat good food, do yoga, get exercise—if I had my preference, I’d go cross country skiing, bicycling, or do Zumba to accomplish this—and shop in thrift stores. I have a particular passion for beaches and hammocks, too. I guess that’s what comes from enduring so many Chicago winters.
