I've been writing my entire life: poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. This love affair with the written word prompted me to take a huge risk and pursue writing as a career after I recovered from cancer. In addition to being a writer, I am a mother, newlywed, volunteer, animal lover, avid runner and swimmer, and parent to a highly neurotic dog.
