I was raised in Colorado Springs. After college in NB, OK and France I returned to the Springs to begin my teaching career. My passions are traveling, reading, writing, my son, my dogs - all those things that bring joy to my life. I am presently retired from teaching French (English, Spanish, drama and journalism along the way!) primarily in junior highs and middle schools (the fun years!) I have taken groups to Europe - primarily France - for the past 35 years. I guess I will always be a teacher! Eventually, I hope to live in France and continue writing there.
