About Me

A former shoes salesperson, bookstore clerk, high school English teacher and librarian who now spends my days taking care of two very loud children while working from home and spends my other days volunteering in her community, visiting family and friends or sitting in pajamas reading sophisticated works of literature or watching trashy tv. It’s taken 6 years of motherhood and over 10 years of marriage to finally start writing some of my stories. My goal is to make you laugh and realize life is not as perfect as it looks in pictures. My other goal is to simply have a place to record our history.

But, I am not just a mom. While I am at a stage where my children take up the majority of my time, energy and brain, I have tried to hold on tightly to the things that make me “me.” For me, this is reading anything I can get my hands on, but I especially enjoy a good family drama. I love to discuss books. I really, really love it. I’m in two book clubs and both help me breathe. Please look at What I’m Reading for book reviews, and please feel free to discuss books in the comments.

I also strongly believe that books are the best ways to learn about other cultures, beliefs and people. They are also one of the easiest ways to learn empathy. This is why I spend a good bit of time reading children's books to my kids. As Whitney Houston sang, "I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them led the way." I can do this with books. You can find all sorts of book recommendations in Kidlit Reviews.

I try to balance out my reading with a healthy dose of trashy television watching. I am mainly just a homebody and typically prefer a night in with a glass of wine in pajamas, but I do like getting out and doing new things. I love to go to live shows (theater, concerts, etc.) and loud, busy places that make my husband super uncomfortable.
