I have been a resident of SW Michigan, USA my entire life and currently have reignited my passion for photography. Living near the shores of Lake Michigan provides many natural photo opportunities! I am a former elementary school teacher, restaurant manager, newspaper correspondent and the list can go on and on. These days I spend most of my time writing children's book and various topics including fossils, photography, poetry and much more for hubpages.com. Speaking of fossils, I share my fossil collection to area schools and on my website at fossillady.wordpress.com.
