Born and Raised in the Summit/Portage County areas of Ohio and attended Field High School. I've been married since 1979 to the same wonderful man! We have two children; a son and a daughter. My daughter blessed us with our first g-daughter five and a half years ago and is expecting a son in January. I live on a hobby farm where my husband raises beef cattle, sometimes pigs, and is an avid gardener. I prefer the flowers myself. I battle Chronic Pain and Fatigue and have not worked for almost five years. I have always been an artist of some sort. Most of my life, I dwelled in Decorative Artistry. My writing gives me the opportunity to release the natural need to create since I can no longer paint. A Country girl at heart, my house is an old 1865 farmhouse that is decorated in Farmhouse Americana. I love my antiques and spend hours combing flea-markets, yard sales and stores trying to find the perfect treasure!!
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the Akron, Ohio US area and remained there until the summer after 6th grade. I then moved to the Kent, Ohio US area, married in 1979 and am still with my husband. Although my youth didn't actually influence me to write, I have reverted to memories of my childhood and places to use in my books.
When did you first start writing?
AAAAahhhhhh.....Raven's Guardian is my first attempt at putting my words on paper. I have always been a decorative artist, but lost the ability due to an illness. Writing has been my release for the creative flow that lives within me.
