I am the mother of one moody 13 year old daughter and one 7 year old that seems to think he knows more than I do. But I would not trade them for anything in the world. Now my husband is another story. His inability to think before he speaks has been the inspiration to many of my stories. But, I still love him to infinity and beyond.
It was due to many sleepless nights that I found myself writing as a form of therapy. Now in between working in a school along with taking care of my family and 2 dogs, I still find time to write. Nothing better than losing yourself in someone else's life. Especially, when you have control over it.
