can often be found on the sidelines of a soccer field, basketball court,
track meet, or softball field, watching her daughters. Her house is a menagerie of kids, cats,
and dogs. Oops, can't forgot the fish and frog.
The house is never
quiet, but somehow she manages to write.
Her backyard has too much wildlife. Visitors range from black bears,
grizzly bears, moose, deer, foxes, porcupines, skunks, and other furry
creatures. No, she doesn’t live in Timbuktu, and she even lives close to town.
She teaches middle school and loves her students and believes middle school students are the best. As an author, she's
completed her second YA fantasy novel and is on the road to publishing when she believes the book is actually ready. She always planned to write, but

believes in the writing process – the whole writing process. Yep, that
includes revision as a key component. Editing is a little bit of clean

She is the youngest of five children.

She loves her daughters enough to make all kinds of crazy, complicated cakes among other things.
Spiders and her will never be friends.

teen. It's never too late to fall head over heels for a book.
