More About Me

  • I love to read anything that I can get my hands on, but fiction is my favorite.
  • I live in the country and enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and animals.
  • My parents are artists and taught me to be creative. I like to work with wood, metal, paper, and fabric.
  • We didn’t have electricity until I was 13 years old. Books and an active imagination were my T.V. Thank you, Mom and Dad!
