I was born in Sun Valley, Idaho a bunch of years ago to a wonderful set of parents and a problematic older brother. He and I didn’t start getting along until we were both near adulthood, and now we are quite close. He’s been my hero many times through the loss of our parents and my daughter. I hope I never have to return the favor.
I live in Arizona and am the editor of a small-town newspaper here. I adopted a wonderful little girl (who keeps getting bigger!) in 2010. She was 8 years old when she came to live with me. I frequently refer to her as my little “lifesaver.” Perhaps we are that for each other.
More recently, I have been fortunate to add two lovely teenage sisters to my family. They lost what remained of theirs, sadly, so we have happily joined forces. Being a working single mom of now three young ladies, I am busier than ever, but also happier than I have been since – well, since Ava died.
I have and love Doberman Pincers and critters in general. I have been an artist all my life, but have hung up my paintbrushes recently. It seems I don’t have any inspiration to paint, but plenty to write. So here I am.
