I live in Missouri with one husband, a variety of pets and two food critics. I love writing, reading and making lists. I’ve written poetry since I was seven. A few years ago I branched out into short fiction and memoir pieces. I’m currently working on the fourth rewrite of my first novel and the first draft of my second novel. My day job takes place at a public library. I’m saving anecdotes so I can write a book about it after I retire. In the present, I’m fortunate enough to spend part of my working day writing blog posts and occasional newspaper articles for my employer. It’s a happy life, getting paid to do what I love.
