A creature of habit, this is me in my natural state: sitting at home with the dogs on the couch with me.



As a kid, my world revolved around two things: stories and make believe. I have built a real life around those two things as well: I am a teacher of stories and a writer of make believe.

While I went to high school in a small town in Oregon and college in a smaller town in Oregon - both gifted me with treasures to fill my creative reservoir and most importantly, my husband. We got married, I followed him from Oregon to Hawaii (it was that or forgo the marriage) and Hawaii has inspired me in ways I could have never imagined.

We have two children, and several furry kids. 

I read and write everyday.
