To Start With...
Born and raised in Michigan, I’ve never strayed far from home. I still live in the same area and own a tiny gal's house with a couple of cats that allow me to be their roommate. I’ve been married before (didn’t work out so well) and am contentedly single.
I'd like to move somewhere warm where I can play golf, hang out on a beach, and write. I'm also considering half and half residency between Michigan and a toasty destination with no snow and ice. Wherever I land, a hut, Wi-Fi, and nine holes are mandatory.
Besides writing and golf, I love to read (of course!) spending time with family, and I’m a total “techno geek”. Not really into girly-girl stuff like shopping, I would much rather sit under a tree with my best friends: Laptop, iPhone, and Kindle Fire.
My Writing Journey
My writing career began in the fourth grade. I chronicled the life of a blade of grass that lived on an athletic field. He bemoaned the weekly torture of mowing and gave a blade’s-eye-view of a football game. (The marching band traumatized him for life.) Don’t remember what grade I got but the teacher and I weren’t exactly on the same page anyway: I burned that bridge after she caught me reading a book during math class.
Wish I still had that story. I’m sure it would be a best seller.
Over the years, I wrote occasionally, but never gave it much thought until life’s circumstances found me in a place of new beginnings. God stirred a passion in my heart and I began to wander down the twisty road of becoming a writer.
Why Do I Write?
My relationship with God is the most important thing in my life. I’ve been a Christian for a long time, but in the last few years, my spiritual journey has taken off. His kindness never ceases to amaze me and because I’m so grateful, I want to use my talents for him and hopefully touch someone’s heart along the way.
