Member Info

St. Charles, Missouri
I was married at age 17 to my first husband. We had three sons together. Two years after my diagnosis of M.S., I went through a painful divorce. Seven years later, I was married to my husband now. We have been happily married for over nine years.

I am a 45 year old mother and grandmother. When I am not spending time with my sons, grand-daughters or husband, I am writing. Within the past three years, I have been published in over 30 magazine articles, including the Nov/Dec issue of the Writer Magazine. I have been featured in newsletters, newspapers and online publications. I write regularly for a local website called www.riverbills.com. I had my first book published in January 2007, "From the Heart of a Mother." It is composed of short stories and poems about motherhood and my 20 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.). My second book, "Our Spiritual Makeover," was just published in December 2008. I will have three of my articles published in three different books in December 2009, including "Chicken Soup for the Soul: Count Your Blessings," "Voices of Multiple Sclerosis" and "Good Dogs Doing Good." Right now, I am in the midst of designing greeting cards for the online 3-cards 123 greetings. I'm always searching for new writing opportunities.

Interests & Hobbies

I love being with my family more than anything in the world. My husband and I love to go boating or flying in his powered parachute. I am not able to drive any more or even work because I am now handicapped; however, I have been able to pursue my writing since I have been home the past few years. I have always dreamed of being a writer some day. Now my dreams have come true.
