Here is my author page on Amazon with a look at my novels, poetry and short stories. I am currently the treasurer for the Poetry Society of Indiana, and I helm a poetry-writing group in central Indiana. I had a bit of fun getting a nomination for a Pushcart Prize in poetry last year (did not win, sadly). I'm the humor columnist for Tails Magazine, and I have plans to become the founding president of the Youth Poetry Society of Indiana. I play auxiliary percussion in a community band (bells, primarily), and I'm a used & rare bookseller with my husband. We have six cats and a terrier, Weegee.

I was born at a very young age--when just a baby, really--to two parents who already had four boys. We all moved from the state of Washington clear across to Michigan. My parents were both from the U.P. of Michigan, but we settled down near the southeastern part of the state, near the same city where my parents had honeymooned years before. They bought a house in a little town of about a thousand residents, one stop light, and a good swimming lake. I was raised there with protective neighbors, a bunch of cats, a giant dog, and my brothers’ gang of friends.

My hometown had the full effects of all four seasons: tons of snow (not like today – it was tremendous at times!); dandelions and pale green grass in the spring; a warm lake to swim in during the summer; and loads of colorful, crunchy leaves in the fall, with fat woolly-bear caterpillars slumbering among them. There were snow forts, tree swings, hula hoops, bikes, ice cream cones from the drug store, sidewalks to sit on, comics to read, badminton, Frisbees, whole days spent in bathing suits, and mittens on long strings through coat sleeves.

Cats always seemed to find me--even away from home!
