Hello! I am a recently published writer (Woohoo!) who enjoys speaking her mind as much as discovering what is in yours. Raised in Phoenix, Arizona, I am accustomed to wtihstanding the heat whether it comes from the sun or my worst critics. I graduated with a teaching degree from the University of Arizona and now travel the country with my husband, an Air Force Officer. We have 3 beautiful children together. I enjoy cooking, exercising (they go hand in hand!), tennis, painting, and reading. I am a Christian whose life and views center around my belief in Jesus Christ.
