About Me

ava2016profilepic

Elegant and graceful have never been words to describe me. I’m the girl bumping into walls, while coming up with the right phrase for a story. Tripping over one of my three dogs is a regular occurrence, or being used as a piece of furniture by my cat. Thankfully, being blessed with a good sense of humor, I manage!

Living in the northeast, I hibernate through the winter, and bloom in the spring. I spend my time between writing and convincing my husband that a warmer climate is in our future.

In my 40’s, with wide hips that refuse to go away, and more gray hair showing up than is willing to be colored, I’ve accepted that this is as good as it gets.

Writing has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. After working at everything from being a 9-1-1 operator to a bartender, to working at a spa, and there was that one stint at the…well, never mind.

One day I sat down and realized it was time to follow my dream and write.

Once I started, I couldn’t stop. Writing is similar to breathing to me, it’s just a part of who I am. I’m blessed to be able to do something I love. Spending my days with my dogs and cat, plucking out words is a dream come true.

I’m the mother of two grown boys, and happily married to a patient man who graciously laughs at my silly jokes, even though my kids tell me I’m not funny. They are apparently wrong. 😉

I look forward to sharing my words with you! Be sure to check back often for new releases. Big news below!!! Be sure to keep reading.
