About Me

I am a quirky, crafty, storyteller.

I write non-fiction. This includes a peculiar, often comical look at daily existence coupled with my passion, pain, and ongoing healing.

I am thrilled when I complete any writing task - a chapter, email, business proposal, blog post, facebook status update, even a thank you note.

I've had some pretty interesting jobs, none of which I was qualified to do - but I'm smart and people like me. Unless you're one of those people who loathes me.

I've been twirling a baton for over 30 years. That is not a euphemism. I spin a metal rod between my fingers and around my body. Sometimes I light it on fire.

I startle easily. I laugh at myself oftten. I hate the dentist.

I despise shopping and typically only do it if I'm going somewhere, and then, I wait till the very last minute.

I like to arm wrestle. I love cheese. I'm a great dancer. I love my toes.

I am determined, resilient, and self-reliant. I am a terrible speller.
