I’ve been a writer since I was just a little country bum growing up in northern Michigan. As an only child of divorce, I spent part of the year bonding with nature and being best friends with the plethora of animals my mother and stepfather collected. In the summers, I splashed around my grandparent’s pool and went boating with my dad. Through all these experiences, stories were always in my imagination. My first story was about a friendly giant and it was illustrated by me, mostly in green marker. I assume cans of the Green Giant green beans may have been my inspiration.
As an adult, I have moved around quite a bit, and have lived in some of the greatest cities- Chicago, New York City and San Francisco. Traveling and living so many different lives, the adventures have provided countless opportunities for writing.
From the absence of salt and pepper shakers on the tables of NYC’s restaurant tables to the latest pandemic inconveniences, these stories reflect the day to day musings on a life well- lived. I hope you enjoy!
