I am a copywriter by day, a novelist by night, and a wife, mother, seamstress, gardener, painter, poet, and photographer in between. I only get paid for the copywriting.
I live in the beautiful state of Michigan where you are never more than a 90 minute drive from one of the Great Lakes or six miles from an inland lake, river, or stream. I grew up in the Bay City area waiting at drawbridges for freighters and sailboats to pass by and smelling sugar beets being processed. I spent my college and young married years in the Grand Rapids area, making the drive between Allendale and GR when gas was less than $1 a gallon.
I now make my home with my husband, Zachary, and our son, Calvin, in a little old brick house in Lansing, nestled somewhere between angry protesters on the Capitol lawn and raucous frat boys at nearby Michigan State University.
And you know, it’s really quite peaceful.
I am currently writing and publishing one short story every month of 2013 and am a finalist in The Saturday Evening Post 2014 Great American Fiction Contest. I am a member of the Michigan Hemingway Society and the Women’s Fiction Writers Association, where I am the newsletter features editor.
