I’ve had a story or a book in my head as long as I can remember. As a child I created stories in my head each night in bed while I tried not to fall asleep. The next night I’d desperately try to remember where I dozed off so I could continue the wonderful tale of places I wanted to go and people I wanted to meet.
Growing up in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio, I often created plays for my elementary school friends to present to the class. Recently one of those classmates posted a picture on Facebook of our fourth grade class dressed in brown paper grocery bags. We could all remember the day, the last day of school, and that the girls put on some kind of silly production, but why we wore grocery bags was lost. I seemed to remember we were dressed as potatoes.
I find inspiration in all aspects of my life. My dogs spark many funny stories, my marriage fills pages with ease, and my muse loves to travel around the world with me. And a recent return to my childhood home for a high school reunion, left my head spinning with ideas for my next novel. The world is out there just waiting for me to write about it.
I currently live in Viera, Florida with my husband, Richard. I volunteer at the local library and lead my monthly book club there. It’s easy to see I surround myself with books and reading has a tendency of getting in the way of writing. I know all you bookworms out there can relate.
Life is a novel, just waiting for me to turn the page.
