My Occupation Artist
My Bio Born and raised in the Chicago area has given me a solid set of Midwestern values and an eye for the crazy in all of us. I am married to my best friend and we are currently raising two children as best we can. After high school I earned a degree in Fine Arts at the Atlanta College of Art (a museum school associated with the HIgh Museum of Art) and fell in love with the south. However entranced I was by this culture and history I yearned to get back to my roots and family and moved back to Chicago where I plan to stay.
I have two blogs; allkindsofcrazy.wordpress.com in which I share my views and life on things that no one speaks outloud and allkindsofreality.wordpress.com in which you can see my point of view from the lens of my camera.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
The historic buildings in and around St. Charles Illinois.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Jennifer Lancaster, Laurie Notaro and Cellia Rivenbark are my kindred spritis. They say it like they mean it. These authors are best savored alone, with a good cup of coffee (or tea), curled up in a comfy chair on a dreadfully dreary day.
NOTE; don't read Laurie Notaro in a public place like an airport/airplane, bus, subway train or the local swimming pool as she leads to all out bursts of uncontrolable laughter that can't be shut off easily.
