I have been married to my college sweetheart for almost 20 years. We have four wonderful kiddos; two teens and two preteens. I received my undergraduate degree in Secondary Education from the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1991 and went on to acquire my early childhood certificate in 1993. In order to date (and later marry) my husband, I began serving in our church's youth group. Together we served the teens for ten years. I spent the next decade serving in children's, special need's and family ministries. And from January to April each year, I am a part-time tax preparer (now there’s a strange mix of interests). For two years I served on the staff of Northbrook Church as the King’s Kids (2nd through 5th graders) Ministry Assistant.
My hobbies include teaching my teens how to drive and driving my preteens across the Wisconsin countryside. I love reading big people books once and awhile (you know the kind without pictures).
I write because I can and because every now and then, I don't have the choice, it just takes over. My best inspiration comes from God, during long walks on country roads with my greyhounds, Dasher and Mary.
