About me

Location Louisville, Kentucky, United States
Introduction There is a letter my third grade teacher, Mrs. Westbrook, gave me on February 16, 1990 that is hanging on my refrigerator. It reads, "I really think you might grow up to be an author. I'm so glad you like to write creative stories! You do a great job!" I leave it there to encourage myself that at one time there was someone out there who saw potential in a 9 year old little girl to be a writer. This life has taken me on some pretty bumpy rides, but if there has been one thing that has been constant, it is my writing. It started with a drawer full of notebooks with unfinished novels in my elementary and teen years. I am hope it ends with a published novel. I started this blog to share my writing with you, but also to share my hopes, dreams, trials and victories.
Interests Fashion, books, theology, movies, biking, swimming, play dates, painting, a bit of crafting, not the witch kind, the kind with needle and thread and interstitial cystitis, not because I like it, but because I have it. Due to the events of the past year I have to add, miscarriage, to my interests. Not because I am a big fan of them (I am definitely not), but because I have started a support group for women who have experienced a miscarriage.
