Until 2001, I lived in the great state of Wisconsin. Then, my husband and I and our two fox red labs moved farther north. We now live on Lake Superior in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where the breaking waves keep pace with my writing.
It seems I've been writing all my life. In my early years, I wrote poems. My writing has become more story-focused with fiction and nonfiction short stories. Recently, I've completed a memoir about growing up with nine siblings in a family marked with emotional upheavals.
Before I put pen to paper, my stories germinate for a while in my mind and heart. True stories, and memories from long ago and recent times, find the way to the printed page, giving clear evidence of story—through dialogue, places and times.
Before releasing my words for others to read, I sift and edit what I've written many times.
