I am a 63-year-old writer and artist with a quirky way of looking at the world. I am a former teacher, commercial writer, newspaper reporter and coordinator of a non-profit organization. I happily share my life with my husband Don, dogs Bernie and Katie and two horses, two geriatric sheep and about 20 chickens. I am an avid reader and a happy resident of "The Mitten," the Great Lakes State of Michigan.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When I write and when I draw or paint, I want to capture one true thing, one true moment. It can be funny or thoughtful. It's the best of all when it is both.
What do your fans mean to you?
So far, my fan demographics include my immediate family, close friends and my dogs. So I'm looking forward to adding more folks to the party!
And Then the Dog's Eyeball Fell Out is a funny, thoughtful collection of essays on being an artist, living with children and animals and her constant delight in her beloved home state of Michigan.The book also includes original illustrations by Jeanne Van Wieren.
