I grew up on the beautiful shores of Lake Vernon. I love this little town. I always knew it would be the place I'd plant my roots. I need coffee, a bag of chips, bubble bath and foot rubs. My kids are my life. I believe in sleeping in on Sundays and that laughter is the best medicine. Writing has always been my thing and I have an interesting rock collection, too. I enjoy meeting new people so if you see me out and about don’t be shy to say hi.
