I am a mother of 3, married to a great guy. Writing is my release of stress. With writing I can be anything in the story. I can make my story the life I never had. I grew up the younngest of 8 kids, my father died when I was 12. My mother is a lot of my inspiration for my stories. At the time of my father's death she had a 12, 16 and 18 year old still living at home. She work herself constantly to provide for us and often went without. She lived home with me until her death in 2009. Buried on my birthday, I helped let her go on the same day several years earlier she brought me into this world. For that I will be grateful.
