About Me:

I was raised on a farm in Northwest Iowa, and currently, I live in Florida.

The inspiration for my Little Bay series originated from the countless hours I spent in the grove of my family farm during my childhood. My secret hiding place was among the mulberry trees, where I would lay on an old, worn-out picnic table, stare up into the trees, and daydream.

 

Another hideaway of mine as a child was in the haymow of our barn, where I cared for numerous cats and made a special town for them called Kitty Kountry. In addition, I loved constructing movie sets with my Fischer Price figures. My ultimate dream was to capture these sets using my parents' camcorder. However, I was never allowed to use the camcorder, which was very unfortunate.

 

Nowadays, most of my most creative and off-the-wall ideas come from traveling with my husband. 

 

My number one LOVE is spending family time with my children and grandchild in Iowa. 

 

Presently, I am employed at DIY MFA.
