I have been writing for over 15 years while raising three children and working (a mom’s gotta pay the bills). I published “Always Alex” when my daughter was 6. I wanted to send a message to all little girls that what matters most is what’s on the inside, not the outside, and that we are the ones in charge of making our dreams come true. I believe the message is just as important today!
I wrote and published my first adult novel, “Photographs” as my youngest child was starting school. It is a steamy novel about two brothers in love with the same woman. They say “Art imitates Life” and I do have two brothers, but one of them drives a BMW and the other one drives a pickup truck with over two hundred thousand miles and no radio. I doubt they would EVER fight over the same woman.
I also have two short stories to my credit. My stories derive from people, places and experiences. Ex-bosses, an ex-friend here and there, an ex-husband, and some crazy times with good friends all make for really good material.
When not working, mothering, writing and now blogging, I enjoy reading, cooking and entertaining for family and friends, walking my dogs, baseball, a good glass of red wine and folding clothes. (Yes…I said that)
I have run 5 marathons, but I am not an expert on the subject…I started running to get out of the house.
I have three children that I am extremely proud of, even though they won’t “friend” me on Facebook. Ahhh, maybe I wouldn’t be so proud….:)
