I am a wife, mother, and sister and all these writings come from my heart. I am someone who has loved and lost. I have had some really great friendships; and, also had to let go of some of those friendships. I have had the courage to stand firm through disappointment and hurt; and, I have suffered loss. Through these experiences, I have gained the strength and courage to write about them. In my writings I am able to make my thoughts and feelings come alive; and, hope that through this book I will be able to help others overcome difficulties that they may be going through.
I was born and raised in the Upper Peninsula, am the fifth of six children; and, I have a twin sister, who encouraged me to write. I graduated high school and attended some college, but my true passion is helping people.
