I am a writer, a wife, a mom, a daughter, a sister, a friend. I am writing a book – which is a far bigger job than I ever imagined. I write because I am compelled. I blog because I enjoy it!
I was born in Miami, Florida, though I grew up in Washington, Oregon, and West Berlin, Germany. I currently live in Minnesota (and have for 17 years) but I also lived briefly in Wisconsin. I spent a summer in Thailand and have visited much of Europe as well as spending a memorable Thanksgiving in Tunisia. Somewhere in there I spend a summer in Connecticut as well as various vacations in Pennsylvania. All of these places have given me a lot of fodder for my viewpoints. Not to mention a lot of knickknacks on my dusty shelves.
Why do I tell you all this? I suppose because it’s who I am – though now, mostly, I’m just a stay at home mom who says “yes” to too many volunteer options and “no” to anything that takes away my writing time.
It is with these perspectives that I will be blogging – I hope you’ll enjoy the ride!
