The mighty oak tree was once a little nut that held its ground.

Background Information

I was born in Chicago and my family moved to Joliet when I was three. I'm married with two kids, 4 dogs, 4 cats, 4 turtles and a rat. Although I hate the rapid growth of Joliet, and dream of moving to another town, I'm still here. My favorite authors are Katherine Kerr and Stephen King, I like to read just about anything. I'm addicted to buying books and learning new things. I've been writing for 20 years (since I was 11 years old). My first story was CRYSTAL THE CRYSTAL WING PEGASUS - never published - but I keep the original handwritten story near my desk. It reminds me of when my passion started. I've had several articles and some short stories published in magazines, newspapers and some e-zines over the years. Somewhere around 180 total. I've also written several columns in The Joliet Herald News (a major newspaper in my area) about pet care. I should mention that some of my earlier writing was done under my maiden name of Locke or Mindock.

Birth Place
Chicago, IL USA

I've recieved some awards for my poetry. I've written close to 500 poems in my life. I've had two poems published "Lonesome Dove" in A CELEBRATION OF POETS 1998 and something in TWILIGHTS DAWN (my only copy got destroyed and it was so long ago, I can't remember.)

Additional Information

My interests outside of writing include: dancing, walking on a beach or in the woods, watching my favorite t.v. shows on DVD and of course having fun with my kids. I work with C.O.P.E. ( a non-profit organization rescuing animals and I almost always have foster animals at my house. I'm also a Approved Humane Investigator with C.O.P.E. It's mostly cats, but we help dogs and any other animal that needs help too! I enjoy being an amateur paranormal investigator. I love the paranormal and anything spooky! I LOVE Halloween! My favorite seasons are Spring and Autumn. It's always a little rainy, beautiful leaves, not too hot and not too cold.
