Deneice Tarbox was raised in Massachusetts. Two years into college she decided to do a stint in the armed forces where she continued to develop her warped sense of humor. Bravery or love (not sure which yet) landed her in Maine where she happily resides with her husband and adult son. She currently works in healthcare but decided it was time to delve back into her passion for writing. Her mottos: Normal is boring and Laugh or wear a straitjacket.
