Story
Tagline
Trained as a historian, I am also a lifelong writer of fiction and poetry. I have traveled widely and spend most of my free time devouring books.
Introduction
I live in Erie, PA with my husband David and our 5 cats and an elderly poodle.  We call our house the menagerie, and I simply love the chaos that so many pets provide.  I am a teacher at heart, and continually find ways to help others through my work, whether inside a classroom or not.  I am currently running a Weekly Writing Group at a local bookstore, working on several of my own projects, and doing freelance writing for Jameson Publishing. 
Bragging rights
I am a true Great Lakes girl, born on Lake Superior, raised on the shores of Lake Michigan, and then migrating to Lake Erie.
