About DM Yates
Writing stories and poetry are DM's passions in life, along with an addiction to reading, and she is often found with her nose in at least one book or e-reader about as often as she's putting pen to paper. She's an avid reader of most genres, but her favorites are sci- fi, fantasy, and action/adventure.
As for DM's writings, she believes that 'my heart belongs to stories but my soul belongs to poetry.' And she has been writing stories and poetry since a teacher first placed a pencil in her hand and she learned the alphabet, or so her twin brother has said. By the way, it should come as no surprise that she's fascinated with the study of twins.
She didn't take publishing seriously until her later years. Now retired, she can spend her days writing, and enjoys every second of it.
DM write stories in the Fantasy Romance Genre, but she's also written a SciFi Romance and a satirical set of short stories. As for her poetry, she writes in the Genres of Spiritual, Love, or New Age.
However, there's much more to her than this. She's highly creative and is always thinking of new projects. Sewing, quilting, embroidering, cross-stitching, plastic canvas, tatting, knitting, crocheting, and decoupage are a few of her many interests.
She's a good cook a baker too and loves to bake breads, desserts, and cookies. She's also a cake decorator and can get quite creative with that, so her family never knows what one of her cakes might look like.
Linguistics is another hobby, and in particular, Proto-Indo European.
She practices Hatha Yoga, dance, and Ballet. She's a strong believer in exercising mind, body, and essence, so exercise is an essential part of her life.
She's an Indie author and proud of it. Along with Joleene Naylor and Roger Lawrence, she makes the third partner in The Ink-slingers League, dedicated to helping every writer become a success. Join them at www.facebook.com/groups/1302864259778831/
