Tidbits about me...

  • I’ve done a freefall twice while parasailing, but I would NEVER bungee jump. That would be too scary!
  • I love cats. They’re my spirit animal. Meow!
  • Our family bought an RV five years ago and it’s made camping year-round dreamy.
  • I love shows about remodeling houses on HGTV.
  • Tulips and Dahlias are my favorite flowers.
  • My favorite picture book as a child was WE WERE TIRED OF LIVING IN A HOUSE circa 1969.
  • I love reading and writing books. So fun being a storyteller.
  • I cried while reading IDA, ALWAYS. Such a sad, yet powerful picture book.
  • I laughed out loud while reading A UNICORN NAMED SPARKLE. A truly funny picture book about what we think we want versus what we need.
