Profile Information

I've lived most of my life in the Midwest. I grew up in Indiana where I learned to ride horses, skip school, and escape into the world of books. I loved the Black Stallion series and read every book in my school library. At around the age of fourteen, I fell in love with writing after reading My Friend Flicka. I didn't know it then, but my course was set. Words were in my veins. My parents divorced when I was seventeen. I graduated high school, married my childhood sweetheart, and went to work in a factory. College was not an option. Fast forward ten years and three wonderful children. I went through a painful divorce and went to work in another factory to support myself and those three kids. On my way to work one day, I passed my children's school bus - they were coming home (to a babysitter) as I made my way to work. At that moment, I vowed to go to college and get a job where I could work during the day and be home with my kids at night. And so I did. I took every writing and literature class that I could, majoring in English (Creative Writing & American Literature). I went on to get a Masters degree, remarry, and leave that factory. Now, I live on a lake and write full-time in my empty nest. Through all of the ups and downs, the one thing that has remained is my love of writing and the written word. I write full time and count my many blessings daily. I can be found on all of the usual online places and all of my novels (as well as ten books for toddlers) can be found on Amazon. Thanks so much for stopping by to learn a little more about me. I look forward to connecting with you!
