I grew up in Maryland and went to college in South Carolina. My first job out of college was as an Army officer stationed in Korea. I met my husband there and we have since lived in Texas, California, Nevada and currently Washington.
One day last summer, as an alternative to having the big kids watch more TV, I suggested we sit down and make up a story. Over the next couple hours, we came up with a title, characters, a main storyline and several conflicts for the main character to face. I told the kids I would continue with it and finish the story. I wrote couple pages over the summer but then put it to the side. Ealier this year I pulled it back out and decided I wanted to get serious. I signed up for the SCBWI Western WA conference (which was really awesome!) and started this blog to get more involved in the writing community. It has been tons of fun!
My other interests include photography and digital scrapbooking, reading, anything outdoors (when time permits), and tennis.
