About Me

  • My home is surrounded by woods, and by wildlife! My animal neighbors include deer, turkeys, beavers, groundhogs, coyotes, turtles, owls, and many different birds. On occasion, a black bear appears. I've even watched a bald eagle fly over my house! 

  • I've been married to my husband for 40 years! We met in 9th Grade, and quickly became best friends. We started dating a few years later.

  • I have three grown children. I am an extremely proud mom! I get to see them quite often, which makes me very happy!

  • I have two granddaughters. One is a high school student, and she is an incredible artist! In fact, she painted the book background for this website! (It's on the Home page.) My other granddaughter is an adorable, precious toddler. 

  • I love to read! I like many genres: children's books, mysteries, historical fiction, classic literature, memoirs, and poetry. A few years ago, my oldest granddaughter convinced me to read her favorite YA fantasy books, and now I love that genre, too!

  • I have three ShihTzus: Tiffany, Fenway, and Paris. Tiffany loves to sit in my lap. Fenway loves to play with toys and bark at cars. Paris loves to investigate everything, and to be mischievous! I decided to make Paris a character in my Charli series. I'm thankful that Paris doesn't cause quite as much mischief in real life as she does in my Charli books!

  • I didn't start riding horses until I was 50 years old! At that time, my granddaughter started taking riding lessons. I thought it would be fun for us to ride horses together. So I started taking riding lessons, too. Before long, I was hooked and I bought a horse! His name was Ringo Starr. I rode him almost every day for eight years. Ringo and I made a great team! We especially loved to canter!

  • A few years ago, I bought my second horse. He is named after Sherlock Holmes, an awesome fictional character! His show name is "Elementary, My Dear" but I call him Sherlock.
