Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. A series of adventures has taken me from the midwest to the Atlantic and all the way to the Pacific coast. I have lived in 7 different states and still continue to enjoy seeing all the beauty and wonderful people that make up this country. All that traveling afforded me a lot of time to read and discover my favorite books and over time I began wondering what it would be like to create a story of my very own. Eventually I, like many others before me, took the plunge and decided to weave a tale that had been bouncing around in my head for quite some time. Years later and here I am!
