About me

I write teen stories about characters who set up camp in my head and refuse to leave. Generally they're sarcastic.  

Random facts about me:

  • I've lived in Montana, Northern and Southern California,  the Big Island of Hawaii, Tennessee, Connecticut, Oahu, Maryland, and (now) Florida.

  • All my books start out on lined paper, the backs of grocery-store receipts, and napkins. 

  • I'm crazy in love with my husband.

  • I'm also in love with grumpy old people and Dark Chocolate M & Ms. Not necessarily in that order.

  • I don't squish spiders; I carry them out of the house.

  • If you see me coming at you on a bicycle, run away.  Quickly. I'm two-wheel challenged.

  • My two grown sons are my heroes. 

  • Robert Burns, the guy who wrote the song we sing at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve (Auld Lang Syne)? That guy?  He's my great great great (?) grandfather.

What? You want more? Sort of nosy, aren't you?

You're my kind of person. :)

Okay, here's my formal-ish, third-person bio:
