Born and raised in Oregon, I now live in Colorado with my husband and our adorable, neurotic rescue dog, Willy.
I began making up elaborate stories, featuring large casts of characters, in elementary school. Lots of drama in those tales, but always a happily-ever-after. Years later, I put them in writing. My mother is relieved I turned out to be an author – she won’t say it, but I’m sure she worried about a kid who spent so much time talking to herself.
When I’m not writing, I’m usually found reading in a comfy chair at Starbucks or watching the latest thunderstorm from our front porch. My husband's project for the last few years - renovating a 1977 Airstream trailer - will be ready soon and we'll be hitting the road to explore nearby states. Cannot wait. He fishes; I write.
My favorite place in the entire world is Cannon Beach, Oregon - where I love to feel the sand between my toes and water rippling across my feet. Maybe we'll pull that Airstream to Oregon!
Life is good.
