Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and learn more about me and my writing.

I graduated from Miami University in Secondary Education in English and Language Arts. After college, I taught HS English in Cleveland before moving to Indianapolis.

After kids, I helped in a different fashion in the school arena, serving as President at their co-operative preschool for several years, on the PTOs for their elementary school (VP, President) and middle school (Corresponding Secretary), as an AVID tutor for their school, and volunteering in the library (books!).

I love to craft, travel, and obviously read in my spare time, besides hanging out with my family.

I write  middle grade and adult fiction.
