M. T. Decker

MT DeckerWhen reading a story, I like to find something unique, a clever twist or unexpected outcome. When judging a story, I assign point values to the story mechanics: spelling, grammar, structure, and an equal number of points to the more subjective qualities of flow and artistry. 

♦♦♦♦♦

Who am I?  Funny you should ask, since I’m still trying to figure that one out myself.

 I’m a writer who spends almost as much time analyzing writing as they do actually writing; I love languages and learning and of course writing.

I’m a musician from a family of musicians; I’m an artist from a family of scientists, I’m a third generation tom-boy , second generation science nerd who believes that you should defy people to pigeonhole you.  I also believe everyone should find a creative way of expressing themselves.

In case you haven’t figured it out by now I’m also a serial hobbyist. 

I write anything from poetry to sagas, although I have yet to write a decent sonnet.  My idea of a good time includes: fencing , noodling out how to computerize a process, breaking software and playing with my dog (although not all at the same time)

I develop software for a living and I write because I can’t not write.  I live in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia with my husband and dog, where I serve as a Deputy Sheriff’s Reserve and of course, write. 

The rest is subject to change.

  1. Fencing? Cool. When I could afford it I studied Haidong Gumdo a Korean form akin to Japanese Kenjustu. Panhandle? I went to Shepherd now I am just to your south in Winchester. So… hey neighbor.
