I grew up on a farm in rural southern Pennsylvania as the oldest of eight children. My dad was an electrician and my mom was a homemaker. I wrote my first story in sixth grade about animals. My teacher, Mrs. Bakkon, helped me with the grammar. Teachers can be the most wonderful gift to their students. I still think of my teacher and how she helped to mold me into the person I am today. My story won an award and was published in a magazine. In high school, I again involved myself in writing as the Sports Editor and Editor In Chief of my school newspaper.
I attended college in Pennsylvania, earning an Associate Degree in Business Administration from The Business School of Widener University, and went on to attain a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Wilkes University. Years later, I again returned to school to earn a Certification in Interior Decorating from Philadelphia University.
After working in sales for a few years, I met my husband and stayed at home to raise our two beautiful and talented children, Michael and Avery.
I am now residing in Miami Beach, Florida, with my two furry children: Sugar and Cookie.
We are planning new adventures as we speak, so stay tuned.
