me.

writer of stories
reader of books
runner of trails

drinker of coffee
knitter of shawls

I am a writer, dreamer, reader, runner, knitter, mom, a cancer survivor, and a coffee addict. I collect extra children as both a hobby and a career, and have anywhere from three to eleven attempting to take over my house at any given moment. My husband and I live in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma with our horde of children, our two dogs, and our salamander.

And my characters are part of who I am. Can’t help it.
