II grew up the youngest of five girls in upstate New York, then lived in Maryland and Vermont before settling in Nashville, Tennessee. There my husband and I spent 24 years raising half our family of six children before moving to North Carolina in 2007. With all our children now adults, I've moved from being a full-time mom to being an on-call consulting guru. I’m also a part-time Parish Administrator and all-the-time writer.
For 16 of the years we lived in Nashville, I coached writing in my children’s schools. I'm glad to say that I am now continuing to encourage children to write by working with Cranberry Quill Publisher's program, WritEarly.
I’ve written children’s plays, cookbook and software reviews, feature articles, short fiction, and even a psalm. Currently I’m focusing on novels.
