I was raised in suburban Detroit with an older brother and a younger sister, and have a lot of happy childhood memories! I knew my husband, Tom, from both high school and church, and we were married in 1970. We are blessed with two wonderful daughters, two terrific sons-in-law, and two fantastic grandkids. Our family also includes rescued pets; Molly, a dog of unknown ancestry, Bailey the cat, and two grand-puppies; a Greyhound rescue named Gunner, and a Golden Retriever mix named Baxter.
Most of my married life I was a happy-to-stay-at-home mom. I did work off and on in various office positions, and was a freelance artist. I've sold several pet portraits and wild duck paintings. Because my hands have become a bit unsteady over the years, I rarely paint these days. Instead, I write. My first book, Mostly Maggie at Doggy Day Camp is based on my experiences in the lowest-paying, most fun and most rewarding job I've ever had. I was a doggy day camp counselor, the perfect job for me. I absolutely loved it!
I'm now retired and plan to spend more time writing. And when I grow up I'm going to raise horses.
