I am the wife of a great guy, I am the mother of three incredibly handsome, amazingly talented young men, and I am an educator in one of the best school districts in the world.
I love reading, writing, gardening, biking, cheering on my favorite baseball team (the St. Louis Cardinals), soaking up the sunshine, and taking occasional rides on the back of the Harley.
In my spare time I enjoy playing with my pet tarantulas, trying out new flavors of chewing gum, and knitting socks for prison inmates. I’m almost positive that in a past life I was one of the Seven Dwarfs (most likely “Grumpy”), and in my next life I’m going to be either a taste tester for Hershey’s or a model for Victoria’s Secret’s new line, “Bloomers for Boomers.” When I retire I plan to travel country back roads, singing Vanilla Ice songs at every karaoke bar and rating bathroom cleanliness at every truckstop. And someday I plan to own a private beach where skinny girls aren’t allowed.
I want to be a writer when I grow up.
