I grew up in the foothills of Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a first name nobody could pronounce and European parents who didn’t believe in owning a TV.
When I was eleven, our family lived in Germany for a year and traveled all over Europe. I treasure those unique experiences and memories that still influence me today.
After I married my high school sweetheart and moved to Illinois, I graduated from Loyola University with a bachelor of science in biology. Today, I work for an internal creative agency for a major healthcare company, where I’m a senior writer/editor and project manager for a variety of media—from journalistic, marketing, web and video communications to instructional and technical projects.
In addition to my family in Albuquerque, I’ve been blessed with two amazing sons, two daughters-in-law who are like my own, three incredible grandchildren, and a husband who treats me like a queen. And, of course, life wouldn’t be complete without our two lovable cats and fearless terrier. Next to writing and reading, I enjoy gardening, cooking, walking/hiking, nature and wildlife, golfing, playing the piano, dancing, and painting/drawing.
Lately, my favorite quote is:
“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.”
I’ve got one foot in the cave.
