About Me

I’m like water…I go with the flow, seek the path of least resistance and always look for the lowest level to pool in.

MIdwestern through and through, I will bitch about winter until I die, while defending its ability to build character. And character I am.

After graduating from the University of Illinois, I quickly joined the ranks of American Airlines as a flight attendant where I learned to fly off the handle.

Living in Chicago, I dabbled in improvisational comedy during the eighties, met my husband, had babies and moved out to the suburbs, where I quietly passed away.

Two grown boys later, I still live in Glen Ellyn with my husband, a cat, and a darling Dachshund who ate a toe of a parakeet. For real.

Writing isn’t easy like I am, but I believe if something is hard to do, do it harder. And I’m doing this as hard as I can.
