I started entertaining my imagination by writing stories down in elementary school. As I got older, I enjoyed inspiring and encouraging others through my writing. A few years ago I realized writing was my true passion and haven't stopped since. I write fiction and non-fiction for children and adults.
I have an obsession with research and reading. Since I panic if I'm without a book, you can find a trail of them throughout my house and car. Although my laptop is not far away, I always write my first draft with a #2 pencil and paper. I collect pencils when I travel or persuade family and friends to bring one back as a souvenir. Each pencil has a story, and it inspires me as I write.
When I'm not writing or reading, I'm spending time with my husband and two boys. They remind me not to take life too seriously and enjoy each moment. My hubby and I met at the University of Missouri-Columbia where I obtained my business degree. Mizzou-Rah! After school, I climbed the corporate ladder, and we decided to start a family. A few years ago, I decided to chase my dreams and rekindle with the writer within.
I love to travel, theme parties, knit, family barbeques, sunsets and watching a storm come in from my front porch.
