Writing is not a hobby or career, but a way of life and way of looking at things.

I’ve been writing seriously since I was 9 years old when I wrote, produced and starred in a play called “The Mugging of Molly’s Muffins.” Since then I have written in nearly every genre and have accumulated a huge body of unpublished works.

I have; however, published a collection of Short Stories through iuniverse.com called “Radiant Darkness” in 2000. In 2001 I published a collection of poetry called “Journey Without A Map.” I have also published two academic papers, “Zen and the Art of Shaw” in the Shavian in 2000 and “The Literary Love Triangle” about Anais Nin in The Cafe in Space in 2010. I have had a few odds and ends poems published in journals, but I am waiting for my big break through.

On a more personal note I grew up in Shelby, Ohio, which is in the middle of nowhere. I wrote freelance articles for my local newspaper at 14. I have suffered depression and bounced back. I’ve lived the wild life and decided it wasn’t for me. I have a beautiful daughter who is 8 and an adorable son who is 4.

I graduated from the Ohio State University at Mansfield in 1999. Then I went to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and graduated with my MA in English in 2002. I’ve traveled across the southwest and all the way to Peru. I hope to make it all 50 states eventually, Europe and New Zealand.

    I accidentally came across your blog. Being a Lamb of Mariah, I was immediately drawn to your writings about her, and your telling of how you connected with her. I run an MC website called “The Lamb Directory” (htp://thelambdirectory.webs.com ) and I invite you to check us out whenever you like. Unlike other MC sites, my site is a “we” site. We run it as a member driven site. Anyone who wants to can help run it. It’s a membership only site, (except during “Open House” month in September) but all info is confidentail and never shared (“open house” does not include the members section). As Lambs, we know all to well the “Haters” out there would love to trounce on us. Hope you stop by. Take care : )

    Dear Cari, this is a fan letter. My girl friend discovered your wordpress site last night and after reading it I was unable to sleep. I am Oscar Steven Senn, glad to meet you. I was so blown away about you playing Spacebread in your mother’s car and your other stories that I was unable to sleep half the night. I have much more to say, but I’d like to email you directly, so I’m looking for your address. Don’t know if you check this blog any more, but you can find me at o.senn@comcast.net. I’d love to talk to you. Keep up the good work!
