I'm a wife, mother, writer, and runner- but writing came first. I was telling stories before I could write and later, while my friends were playing with Barbie, I wrote plays and short stories for fun. Life took me in a different direction when I married my high school sweetheart, MJ. We served 4 years in the Air Force together, had two (literally) bouncing boys, and moved halfway across the country. Leaving behind a job in a hospital laboratory for life as a stay-at-home mom took some getting used to. In my (very little) free time I discovered blogging. After working in a scientific field for ten years, it was nice to feel my creative juices flowing again.
