Born and raised in Aurora, Illinois I spent my childhood playing street games with the neighborhood kids.
I attended grade school at Nancy Hill Elementary and McCleary Elementary, then promoted to Junior High School at Jefferson Middle School. And last, but not least, I attended West Aurora High School.
My first job was delivering newspapers. Yes, I had a paper route! The Beacon News. I had a bicycle, but it was much easier to walk.
When I wasn't outside, I spent much of my time reading and getting lost in adventerous worlds and whirlwind courtships. At the age of seventeen, I moved to Kentucky and eventually began to raise a family of my own.
In Kentucky, I attended Fugazzi College, then Bailey's Barber College. Yes, I'm a Master Barber.
I have always been entranced by stories of magical adventure, and though I have had to live in the practical world, running a family business as well as two of my own, I have discovered that writing is an entirely new, exciting adventure all on its own!
We have a large family and our get togethers are so much fun! And did I mention that I’m a photographer? Yes, I take tons of photos!
We also have a mini dachshund, her name is “Roxy” she only weighs 10 pounds but is a huge part of our family. She's so spoiled!
