I was born and grew up in a tiny little town in West Texas where there was lots of room for a girl’s imagination to roam. The lack of organized activities left plenty of time for art and story writing, two of my favorite things.
When I was a teenager my family relocated to Southern California and I was exposed to a myriad of new experiences, the least of which was the booming military influence. I have always loved military vehicles, especially jets. Technology fascinates me. Exploring space has always been a dream, too. While in California I worked as a technical writer and illustrator for a naval government contractor while earning a degree in Photography.
I now live in Minnesota with my husband and daughter where I work part time as a freelance writer and photographer. I am a member of several critical writing groups where I lend a hand in helping other writers get their work ready for the world. I also write poetry and enjoy exploring the mixed media art fields.
I am enjoying the thrill of writing again and am truly thankful to everyone for being so supportive. Thanks a bunch!
I spend my spare time with family, friends, gardening, reading and relaxing at the lake. But stay tuned, I'm always working on my next story.

Great short story! Was nodding my head to everything Justine was saying and thinking the whole time.
