My Story

     I grew up in Wichita, Kansas where the wind turns wheat fields into oceans of golden waves. The beautiful scenery and life experiences have fueled my writing for years. I met my husband in Wichita and we married in 2011. I then joined him as he traveled with the Air Force from Kansas to Glendale Arizona, Eglin Florida, and finally to Baltimore Maryland where he is now retired. After we moved to Arizona I decided to pursue my Master's degree in creative writing/literature with a certificate in teaching. With this degree, I hope to continue writing stories and reach out to the community to encourage others to put pen to paper and share their stories. I feel everyone has a story, they just need the right words to tell it. After completing my degree I plan on educating others and volunteering to encourage literacy and creative writing. The landscape has changed over the years but my imagination has stayed the same. I have dabbled in many creative endeavors with writing being what I always fall back on. I hope to leave a legacy of knowledge and words behind for future generations.
