Life provides us all with an abundance of stories. Stories of triumphs and trials. Stories of joy and grief. Stories of life and death. Valuable lessons can be learned through our celebrations and tribulations. Living in Minnesota provides me with a canvas of lakes and rivers and forests and of course, the twin metropolis. I write memoir and women's fiction and love connecting with other writers at writers' conferences and workshops. If I'm not spending time with my family, or writing, you'll find me sitting in my recliner watching the latest law series with my full-grown Rottweiler ON my lap.
