I am a writer

I outted myself at school this week. I have been keeping my writing life and my culinary life and real life separate.

Or as separate as I could. But I admitted to some people that I am a writer and I am interested in not only writing books but food writing/critique/critic.

Do people not in your circle know about your writing life?

So with the statement that “I am a writer”, I have been writing. I am working on a few stories. And also getting ready to jump into the agent hunt soon. I’m going over the final tweaks and working on the query letter.

Here are some food pics from my foray into the kitchen and into the culinary world. In case you didn’t know, I am currently in culinary school and will be graduating in September of this year. So enjoy some food pics. I will be posting pics, tips and even a few recipes from time to time.
