About Me

I’m a grandma, mom, sister, daughter, aunt who loves a good live show, reading in bed, making it to shavasana and putting pen to paper. My family – 2- and 4-legged – are my favorite companions. I’ve been a host sister, a host mom and an area rep for exchange students and am looking forward to sharing those adventures with you.

I’m anxious to begin traveling again once it’s safe. There is still so much world out there to experience! For now, I write – to tell my stories and to be inspired by my reader’s stories as well.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime. – Mark Twain
