I cannot avoid it anymore; I need to write a bio. It should be easy; I write all the time. I find stories; discover characters and watch them spin out their lives. Why would it be hard to put down a few lines about myself? I am not very good at bragging. So here is my best shot. I grew up in Michigan, went out to Washington for college, New Mexico for graduate school, a few twists and turns later I land in Charleston, SC. I have become a devoted mother and an avid sailor. I have always had stories floating around in my brain; they would come and go but, Drew and Amy refused to leave. I hung in there and put their entire story down. I hope you enjoy it.
