I like to travel, hike, read, paint, be healthy and read boring economic reports. I am the wife to an uber-cool and sexy husband and a mom to two awesome children.


I believe passionately in following your dreams and taking a chance on them.  That's why I'm doing all of this; I have a book series in my head that is just dying to come out.  There are so many of us, authors, that it feels like I'm one in a gazillion.  But I’m still working hard to make it happen anyway.             ?


My family always comes first

I desperately wish I could have

a million career paths in my lifetime

I want to learn how to surf

I really really really want one of these



1.  What is your favorite animal?

I'm going to say an elephant.  They are extremely smart, sensitive and can sneak up on you in the middle of the jungle.  Sometimes they visit the bones of their elephant friends who have died and spend time mourning over them.


2.  What is your least favorite animal?

Maybe the cockroach.  Or snakes.  No, some snakes are okay, maybe just the snakes that bite you.


3. Which arm rest do you prefer at a movie theater?

Both of them.


4.  Where is your most favoritest place you've lived?

Hawaii.  I lived there for a little while when I was 20.  I even hitchhiked, worked on a corn farm, and never learned how to surf. :(  But I had a killer tan and eventually the locals got over my howlie-ness.  That's also where I learned that I have an irrational fear of snorkeling and that the locals really do have their own language.


5.  What has always been your biggest dream?  Have you gotten it yet?

To have an amazin husband.  And yes.  Yes, I have. :P


6.  Would you rather be ugly and live forever, or attractive and die in a year?

Neither.  I'd rather be healthy, and live just long enough.


7.  Where do you see yourself retiring?

For some really strange reason I see myself living a life of solitude in the country of a third-world country with a big garden and a small house.  But that will probably never happen because I will always have to have the internet to publish my books.  Unless I become so popular and rich, that I can ship my manuscripts via pony express.  Plus I have a black thumb.


8.  If you had a brainwashing machine, who would you use it on?

Easy.  My kids.


9.  What is the strangest thing you have ever eaten?

I'd say it's a tie between rocks as a kid and the crunchy thing in the soup of my Mexican friend who said it was the heart of a chicken.  Or was it the liver? (Yuck!)


10.  Is there something you constantly lose at your house?

Yes.  Everything.


11.  What did you want to be when you 'grew up'?  Did you accomplish that?

I always wanted to work with dolphins.  And no because science.


12.  What is your favorite book and why?

I adore Jane Eyre.  And yes, the romance of the novel is great, but that's not why I love it so much.  I love love the progression of Jane.  She grew up as a hated, unwanted child with nightmares, and very little confidence in herself and those around her.  As she grew, she became very independent and fell in love with the right man.  The perfect man for her.  And yet, when it came down to being with that man versus sticking to her values, she chose to be true to herself and her values.  Then she was asked to marry a man who she did not love (and honestly who did not treat her very well).  In her time it was perceived to be better to marry a man you did not love than to be a single woman, and yet, again, she stayed true to herself and did not give in to pressure.  She forgave those who hated and used her, and showed genuine kindess and love to all around her.  She grew into herself and became a beautiful person.  I love to read books where a person is has a lot of trials and challenges, and yet, despite those challenges (or because of them) they become a better person.
