I'm the oldest of three girls. I was raised by my grandparents (my mother's parents) and have to admit I had a pretty spoiled childhood. We were in no way, shape, or form wealthy. No my grandparents worked every single day to make sure my sisters and I had the things we needed, as well as a few extras.
My mother, well I could write a book just about my life in trying to deal with her. Let's just simply say she has a LOT of problems and even though I had the love and devotion of her parents, I grew up pretty fast. It wasn't that I didn't have a childhood, because I did, I just had to deal with things that most of the other kids around me never knew about.
All that is in the past though.
Now I am a wife and mom of three, two boys and a girl. My oldest is getting ready to graduate kindergarten and it amazes me each and every single day how much he is growing up already. The twins, well they are an adventure themselves! I am hoping for preschool next year, crossing fingers they get accepted.
People always ask, how do you find time to sit and write with three kids? It's actually really easy. My hubby works a second shift job so after 8pm when the kids are all tucked in for the night, I sit down here at the computer and type away. I get a good three hours each night of uninterrupted writing time :)
There really isn't much that I don't enjoy to be truthful! I am one of those people who is willing to try just about anything once, unless it involves heights!
Of course my number one hobby is WRITING, as if you couldn't guess that!
I like doing crafty things like scrapbooking, crocheting, and other little projects with the kids.
I love being outdoors so hiking, camping, fishing, swimming, etc are all a must have when the weather permits.
I also love doing research for my books. I find it so thrilling to find out things I don't already know, and I have such a sense of accomplishment when I can stick them into my writing without being obvious.
I love to dance, sing, be silly, and talk. Yes I love to chatter away about anything and everything. I am your typical girl when it comes to communication, I don't thrive without it!
