Welcome to my blog. I'll be posting from time to time, so please check back often. I'll be writing about my books, my travel, and the odd things (and usually funny) that seem to keep happening to me.

I have always loved to write. When I was about five, I used crayons to write on the walls, on the furniture, and even on our floors. Needless to say, my parents were not very happy about that. However, instead of getting really mad at me, they bought me paper to write on. That is when I think I can say my writing career first started because I started writing to everybody: my parents, my neighbors, my friends, and even to my dog. My mom also read to me every night. She read me stories about Paul Revere, Daniel Boone, famous explorers, and other interesting people. She gave me my love for stories, especially true ones. If you want to read the full story of how I became a writer, please click over to About Me.

I'll be back soon. In the meantime, take care!


P.S. I'd like to thank Tracey Matteson for helping me set up this blog. She's wild!
