I am from N.E Oklahoma where I live with my husband, 4 boys , 2 dogs, and 2 cats. There is never a dull moment in our house. Especially with three of our boys being teenagers and the one who isn't thinks that he is. I have always loved reading anything fiction. I think that reading should be an escape from the dreadfulness of some realities. And that is exactly what it has always been for me. I never wanted to be a writer even though I have always used poetry as a way to express myself. I started writing short stories as a coping mechanism after I lost my daughter and it has gone from there. I am very thankful for every single person who picks up my books and gives them a chance.
