About me

Location Charleston/Derry, WV, USA/Ireland, United States
Introduction I grew up in West Virginia and developed the writing bug after winning a poetry contest in elementary school for my poem, Bear. I have always written as a hobby and never considered trying to make a career of it until recently. After determining that being a princess wasn’t a good career path, I decided I would be an FBI agent (mostly through watching too many episodes of The X Files). But then, realizing that as an FBI agent, the possibility of seeing a dead body would increase, I scrapped that idea too. I went through many career choices before landing where I am today—a writer and a Zumba instructor who also works for “The Man.” I also write for Examiner.com as the Charleston Budget Travel Examiner. I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing and a master’s degree in criminal justice, both from Marshall University. Having been all over the United States and 14 countries, I love to travel, but my favorite place is my hubby's homeland of Ireland. I have taken my many trips to Ireland and worked them in to my first novel, Coincidence (release date November 2010). EPIC member since 2010. I can be contacted at LesRH80@hotmail.com
