I live in southwest Missouri where I was born, raised and will probably die. I am the mother to a beautiful, hilarious little girl and the wife to an amazing man…who is determined to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger by the time our daughter reaches dating age.

I have a self-appointed doctorate in armchair psychology, an actual degree in business management, a certification in Locksmithery (because why not) and act like I know everything else.

I love to read and write fiction, from adult novels  to picture books, and am obsessed with understanding people.  I believe Shakespeare was right to classify life as either a tragedy or a comedy, but it was Charlie Chaplin who interpreted it with pinpoint accuracy, “Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in the long-shot. “

And I dream to create that in fiction.
