I am an actor/singer with nearly 100 credits to my name (not showing off... showing I've been busy). I went to an unaccredited film school in California (part of the reason I have yet to complete my degree) and studied screenwriting (1 independently produced). Returned to NC and started writing short stories (published). I've driven cross-country twice and fell in love with the South West (Taos, NM specifically). I could keep going, but those are the "cool" things I've done.
I sound like a middle-school girl when I say it, but I believe in true love. A lover is more than a sexual partner. He is your best friend.
