We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.  –E.E. Cummings

I write for adults under the pen name Hopelessly Inappropriate. I’ve been writing since I graduated from Ball State University in 1999 with my BA in Secondary English Education. While teaching the literary canon throughout Arizona, I continued creating stories and poetry, taking ESL and creative writing courses for my MA through Northern Arizona University. A year into my master’s program, after ten years of teaching high school, I met my husband, got married, and had a beautiful baby. I’m a writer, a woman, a wife, and a mother who has been a paraplegic for over half my years alive, giving me a different perspective on life. This is why I write.

With my blog, I write to be creative and entertain. I hope you enjoy the adventure of watching my crazy posts full of sweet, dark, even sensual and erotic thoughts that my shy self can’t help but get out. Forgive my odd sense of humor. I have to make myself laugh a lot;)
