I live in Missouri with one husband, a variety of pets and two food critics. I love writing, reading and making lists. I’ve written poetry since I was seven. A few years ago I branched out into short fiction and memoir pieces. I also have two novels in progress. Some day I might try to publish one of them. My day job takes place at a public library. I’m saving anecdotes so I can write a book about it after I retire. In the present, I’m fortunate enough to spend part of my working day writing blog posts and occasional newspaper articles for my employer. It’s a happy life, getting paid to do what I love.
