I live in a small coastal California town with my family and our Bulldog, Sam. I have four great kids, who inspire me to write from a child's point of view, sweet, whimsical and silly. I have a wonderful family. Michael, my parents, brothers and my sissy, cheer me on and always buy the first copies. I also have some amazing friends who support me as well. I can always count on them to read, re-read and edit my stories. I love the simple things, cooking, laughing, family, friends, music the beach, watching my kids play and writing.
