About Me

June 18, 2015

About Me:

I am a Christian, wife, mother, daughter, friend, allergy afflicted, frugally minded, mystery book reader and writer, former small town news reporter, and class “A” day dreamer. I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Grand Valley State University, when it was still in college status. I’ve been published over 300 times – if I’m allowed to count the multiple weekly deadlines during my three year stint as a reporter and seven years as a newsletter editor – all in the same small town outside of Grand Rapids, MI. Anyone who knows me is aware of my horrible sense of driving direction ~ Google.Maps is a close and personal friend! So I guess it’s no wonder I’ve taken a few detours in this writing life. Too bad I didn’t have a GPS for that as well!

I currently live in the Greater DFW, Texas area with my family and a Betta fish named Indigo. He’s supposed to keep me company in this solitary life as a writer ~ but mainly he just looks to me for food. UITA_AboutMe_BlueWall_2015©PPP_0649Still, I talk to him. Good thing he can’t divulge any of my plot twists! (Update: sadly, poor Indigo went to fishy heaven just months before we moved closer into the DFW metropolis. RIP Indigo.)
