About Me and My Books ...
Just in case you wondered what I am really like and why I write the stories I do ...
I grew up the leader of the neighborhood imagination club mostly by default since I was the oldest. We had many adventures and I am proud to say they were among the most fun I have ever had.
When I finally made it through high school and college and into the adventure of marriage and motherhood, I decided to write down my imaginary exploits in the form of stories. This not only gave me a reprieve from the daily grind of tending babies but gave me an outlet for my imagination. And I had five little heads to fill with nonsense so they could enjoy their own adventures.
Marrying my prince charming and playing with our little princesses and princes hasn't done much for my maturity but it has helped my imagination to a very large degree. I think I am a better writer because of it and will continue to be immature and nonsensical with my grandchildren when they come along!
You may often find me baking a cake, entertaining friends, watching movies or shopping for a new purse but you will find that I am happiest when my husband is waiting on me! I love to feel like a princess! And I love to make him yummy chocolate cake!
About my books:
I began writing after my husband said, for the millionth time, that he was going to write a book. I decided I would try it out and ended up loving it! I wrote my first story over the course of a few years, hoping to get it done some day for my children. I wrote another and then finally ended up with Tymberfeld. All the while I wrote with the idea that these would be young adult novels, hoping to put more stories out there that moms wouldn't mind their kids reading. Every book I write is written for young audiences with the hope that moms - and maybe even some dads! - don't mind reading them, either! As a mom I know how hard it is to find good books that don't contain inappropriate language and other details that we want to keep our kids away from. So here is my solution - writing my own stories that I know I would let my own kids read - worry-free!
