At the age of 9, I knew that I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. There was nothing else in this world that I wanted to do. I’ve written three full-length novels, a couple of poems, and a few short stories. Currently, I reside in God’s country in the Northeast, where I live with my fiance and our cat. I have three daughters and two granddaughters. My eldest daughter is an Assistant Manager at a local fast food chain, and she is the mother of my two sweet little granddaughters.My second eldest daughter spent the past four years living abroad over in Japan teaching English and is now residing in California, hoping to experience another adventure. My youngest daughter resides in the northern region of New Hampshire experiencing life in the country.
When I was fifteen, a traumatic experience that nearly cost me my life, ignited my love of writing, and the creativity juices began flowing. Since then, I have been working on the sequels to the book that I started back then. I have two of them in the rough draft stages still, as I keep finding ways to implement new drama. A couple of years ago, I decided that I wanted to enhance my writing skills and move forward with publishing my novels, so I enrolled at Southern New Hampshire University online. Being enrolled online has allowed me to still continue working on my novels.

It’s funny how I never liked school as a pre-teen and teen, but as a forty-something young woman, I am loving school and never want to stop learning. My writing is growing as is a desire and passion to learn more about linguistics and study it as J.R.R. Tolkien once did.
This educational journey has been more than I could have hoped for. Those I have met along the way have helped to keep me on track and pressing forward. As Frost once said, I took the road less traveled.
