I am currently looking for remote, flexible-hour positions that enable me to make best use of my work-life experiences. These are fairly broad but I believe that such a generalist background is very beneficial in these times. My experiences include blogging and some content freelance writing; customer service and being a virtual assistant. The latter has broadened my skillsets for work in customer service, data entry or writing and blogging assignments.
I am a writer and blogger whose currently avocation focuseson addiction. I am the author of two Catholic devotional booklets for people in recovery. My primary creative desire, apart from continuing the devotionals, is to write Catholic-themed spiritual fiction. I hope to explore those areas at the intersections of Faith and Reason; contemporary drama with side trips though the preternatural with rest stops in the boundaries of the afterlife. I am one of those who think there is another reality just out of the corner of your eye; you turn to look, it disappears. I try and focus on my characters as I have found that by creating interesting people I can actually sustain the writing effort. My characters need a life, and the novels they will be in help them to discover such a one as they work out their situations and each other.
So, I suppose that Catholicism, addiction recovery, reading, writing, death and the fuzzy gray areas along the borders of life are interests. Oh, I also like cats and Mac computers.
