My make-a-living job is running a business with my husband. We design and build electronic test equipment. I have a passion for dogs, cooking, and writing, particularly writing for children. I've written a restaurant review column, published a few magazine articles for children's magazines, and with my new agent's help, I hope to publish my first middle-grade novel soon.
