About Me

I am a writer, a lawyer, a seminarian, and an athlete. I also am a wife, a daughter, an aunt, and the mother of three precious felines, Skylar (d. 2008), Bread and Butter. Every day, I put pen to paper. I journal for myself. I write for work and for school. Sometimes I write to submit. Mostly, I write because I love to read. I am inspired by writing that evokes a response from me.  I admire people who put words together in a powerful way, and I aim to be one of them.

Writing is serious business. But it’s also terribly fun, as life should be. My greatest joy in writing is connecting with others in some way. If you found something on this site to be encouraging, worth a laugh, or useful in any way, I would love to hear from you.  You can reach me by email at imtaline@gmail.com.

  2. Taline – replying to your most recent post..

    I don’t know if you remember me, but we’ve attended writing retreats and story circle evenings together. Sometime in the last week or so I remembered your blog and tried to find it. Took me til now to realize it was Imtaline, rather than IAMTaline. I always did resist contractions in writing 🙂 and you can contemplate your choice for awhile if you wish. 🙂 (Seems to me yours is less rigid.)

    I’ve been recently focused on a potential work change that appears will not happen. On my at-home-whiteboard I wrote, “Live the life you want regardless of the job. Period.” So your most recent post made me go “SIGH” and let my shoulders descend from somewhere above my ears. Thank you for sharing. Hope our paths cross again. Kristin
