I grew up the typical brainy kid: excellent grades, reading anything I could get my hands on. It was a creative writing class during my junior year of high school truly sparked the writing bug in me (Thank you, Mr. Lancaster, wherever you are!)
I only have one publishing credit, in a local weekly paper that promptly went out of business the week after my poem appeared (which I hope is a total coincidence.) No major awards yet, unless you count the “World’s Most Awesome Mom” certificate hanging on my refrigerator. My graduating class did vote me “Most Likely to Be Elected President,” but I’m not entirely sure that was a compliment.
When I’m not writing, I can usually be found spending time with the family, watching NASCAR, or rocking my best diva attitude during karaoke.
I chose a dandelion as my flower because they are bright, persistent, and can bloom absolutely anywhere!
