LaRae’s Short Bio
I was born with a loose screw. No kidding, I was. It has gotten me into trouble and out of trouble, so I can’t complain about being a little daft.
I was also born with an umbilical urge to write, or to tell stories I made up on the spot. That got me into a lot of trouble, and out of trouble, so, I can’t complain. 🙂
In 1991, I became a VERY famous artist. (wink, wink). I drew, painted, and wrote painting instructions for a publisher. I had 13 painting books published-which is weird, because I never considered myself an artist. I was a faux artist, I guess.
In 2005, a simple medical procedure went terribly wrong and landed me in the ICU on life-support because of respiratory and multiple organ failure. Even though I beat the odds and survived, the doctor told me that my brain had crashed and and needed to be rebooted.
The good news was I had a brain. The bad news was it wasn’t working. I had to relearn how to stand, walk, go upstairs, comb my hair, etc. Forget about reading.
In 2010, I learned how to read and write again. I never did get my faux artistic skills back, but that’s okay. I didn’t have them to begin with. 😉
So now I’m doing what I’ve always wanted to do . . . write. Tell stories, make-up stories and enjoy the little fantasy world I have always loved. My stories will take you on some crazy journeys if you’d like to go.
My Comedy/Romance/Paranormal, The Danish Pastry, is the result of my learning to read and write again therapy. I still struggle with reading, but being able to write is a lot easier . . . weird, huh? What can I say? I’m weird . . . in a good way though.
