Dirty Dan was a character my third grade teacher directed us to draw. I decided to write a story about him, since my older brother had when he'd had the same third grade teacher. I loved writing the story and decided I wanted to be an author when I grew up. In fourth grade, I was bullied. I turned to writing as a healthy outlet. I loved that I could control my characters' fate. My fourth grade teacher supported my creative process.
I'm a Born-Again Christian, and my faith is very important to me. My husband and I met through God's timing and His guidance. God has led me through a lot in life, and I'm very grateful for Him and His guidance. When I was in a college group at Foothills Church, one of the young women I met told me about a Novel Writing class at Grossmont College. I started taking the class with Lisa Shapiro. God provided me with that class. Lisa's an amazing teacher, and the class was a huge blessing. I am a member of the San Diego Christian Writer's Guild.
I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Library Science and a Masters of Science Degree in Information and Library Science from Clarion University of Pennsylvania.
