I have always felt my life has been blessed. I've been
married to the same wonderful man for over thirty years
(would you believe me if I said we were wed at the tender
age of twelve?), raised two beautiful intelligent
daughters, Sara and Carey, and spent the last twenty-three
years as a women's gymnastic judge.
I have a fantastic sister named Nancy, a lovely niece,
Claire, and a handsome nephew, John, as well as an
assortment of aunts, uncles and cousins who all plan to
come to my book signings to keep me company.
I've lived in Illinois, New Jersey, and Texas. Right now I
reside in the Washington DC area, but will soon be moving
to the tip of the Delmarva Peninsula and a tiny town in
Virginia called Cape Charles. Besides my husband, I have
two dogs, Rudy and Buckley, who keep me company, and I
still judge gymnastic meets at the age group and college
level whenever I can. But ever since I discovered the magic
of books, about the time I was five years old, reading has
been my passion.
