Hi, I'm RJ Maurer
I am a Writer/Director based in Indianapolis, IN. I love working as a freelance writer and try my best to have fun where ever I go. I love traveling, music, animals and adventure type fun in general. I take my dog Lilah everywhere I can, so expect to read a lot about her as well.
When I travel I love to scuba dive and try local cuisine. So a lot of my travel writing will revolve around those. I have already been to most of the continents and have been traveling most of my life. So I look forward to continue doing so.
I am a music enthusiast and bass player in my free time. I love when I get together with some people and have a good jam. Concerts are always fun and definitely expect to hear about any jams or concerts.
Lilah is my American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. I do what I can to help other rescues as well but having her around is an adventure all on it's own. She loves coming with me to the wilderness and will stopping by to say hi every once in a while.
Keep in touch to read more and follow my fiction writing as the stories unfold.
I hope I am able to give you a little escape from reality in your trip to my humble abode!
