About D.E. Chandler
I was born on January 11, 1971. I would love to tell you it was in the middle of the night during a fierce blizzard or thunderstorm, but I think it was really closer to noon. It was probably cold though. I have borne and raised three sons, and survived to tell the tales. Now I am embarking on a writing career.
It’s been a rocky old life from time to time, and I can’t say I’ve always handled the bumps with the grace I wished I had looking back. I just did the best I could at the time. Now, as a forty-something freshman in college, I have chosen to devote myself fully to the aforementioned writing career. And it is thanks in large part to my friend Kary (from The Once and Future Librarian blog) and my supportive husband and family.
I’m really just a Fantasy-Horror-SciFi buff with a writing addiction and a knack for having too many irons in the fire. I’m never bored though. I try to be a Jill of all trades, as I have a plethora of serious interests, however, my deepest true love has always been writing. That’s right, I’m the kid in high school typing class who got the “D” because she was too busy typing up the scandal sheets for the day, and didn’t get her work done. Maybe now that the writing is my job, that problem is solved. 😉
This blog isn’t just about me, though. Sure, you’ll find some of my early works, submitted as writing samples, but you’ll also find the remnants of two other blogs here. As of May 2013, I am beginning Metaphysical Mondays and Great Green Tuesday Tips. Along with writing, I have a passion for nature and exploring all things in it, especially that which is called “super”natural or “para”normal. I am fascinated by the strange things people experience and how it affects their lives. That’s the topic on Metaphysical Mondays. On Great Green Tuesday Tips, I’ll be sharing my journey on the path to a smaller footprint, and a healthier mind/body/spirit.
I am still involved with the Ghost Trackers of Oklahoma blog and group, though we’re on a bit of a hiatus right now, while I pursue the school and writing. GTOO will still look into things if needed though (there really is more than just me), so hit that blog for the latest contact info. The rest of the time, I spend outside or helping my husband Tom out here at Sahoma Lake, Where he and I reside as caretakers. The Sapulpa Lakes Blog has all the fishing information and the Sapulpa Parks website has all the info for the other parks in my hometown.
I look forward to meeting everyone and hope you enjoy the blog!
