I've been married for nineteen years and am constantly inspired by my two beautiful daughters, an adventurous Bullmasador adopted from The Humane Society, and an adorable Beagle/Pointer pup who was rescued from the Everglades. I write humorous middle-grade novels and quirky picture books. I'm an active SCBWI PAL member, the FL SCBWI Listserv Editor, an Administrator on Verla Kay’s Blueboard, and a founding member of From the Mixed-Up Files…of Middle-Grade Authors. I’ve been published in Highlights magazine, and two of my manuscripts placed in the 80th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition.
I love NaNoWriMo, and have successfully completed it six times! Of course, it can take me a year to revise the novel afterward, but I love all the gems that surprise me when I write at such a quick pace!
