My Life

Who Am I Really?

I’m a writer, obviously, but who else am I? I find it hard to talk about myself so the following may give you a peek into my life.

What is Your Favorite Quote?

“The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”

~Stephen King

I hate adverbs and my writing clients and writing friends all laugh at me when I’m picking apart the adverbs in pieces. I’ve even been called the “Adverb Queen.”

Do You Have Any Pets?

At the present time, we have three dogs and one cat.



is our three-year-old mini bull terrier.



is our eleven-year-old jack Russell terrier/Australian cattledog mix.



is our two-year-old French bulldog.



is our kitty.

*Willow and Ernie are like toddlers that never grow up.

Describe Your Partner in Three Words.

Loyal.  Hard-working.  Funny.

What Did You Want to Be When You Grew Up?

I have always wanted to be a writer but went to college initially to be a teacher. My goal was to teach reading to adults. Plans changed when I quit college in my third year and got married. After my divorce, I went back to school and got my BA in English with an emphasis on creative writing.

How do You Relax?

I love to read, so when I want to relax I sit in my BIG chair and read. I’m always joined by all three dogs on my lap and sometimes Millie on my shoulder.

Do You Have Any Hobbies?

I love digging in the dirt and working in my gardens. I don’t love weeding, but it is a great way to do something that doesn’t take much thinking.
