Born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago, I have always been a writer. I like to write my way in my style. My inspiration comes from nature, my kids and my emotions. I use my emotions and feelings to generate poetry, its like it was born into me. I also love to write children stories and How-to craft books. I also draw all my own pictures. For fun I am an Avon representative, its a great company for women and gives empowerment to those of us who need it. I also just began the newest adventure of my life, blogging. I live in a beautiful place called Sugar Valley with my husband of 17 years, 3 children, my cat and many fish.
