A Little About Me
Hey look! It's me!
I first started writing when I was about 8-years-old. I wrote a story, which I planned on having adapted into a play, about 4 friends who enter a mysterious amusement park, and only 1 comes out. Yikes! I wasn’t a creepy kid, I just had an active imagination and that has served me well all the way into adulthood. I took a break from writing after that and didn’t pick up the pencil until I was 19, but by then I was in college pursuing a degree in Psychology (I may have been trying to address those early childhood issues.) so writing was put on hold.
Finally, after getting married, earning a graduate degree in Psychology, and sending my son off to Kindergarten, I started to write again. No more thrillers for me, I write children’s books! Luckily, I still get to use my active imagination, but now it’s to think of weird, silly, or quirky ideas that get those little imaginations moving.
