After attending thirteen schools in twelve years, I married my husband Tim in 1971 and my life became much more stable. I went to three colleges in five years (Tim was an Architecture major, and back then it was a five-year degree.) Tim still knows people he went to kindergarten with. I, on the other hand, have to think hard to remember which state I went to kindergarten in. Yes, my father was in the military and not just the military the Air Force. I say that because I was in high school before I realized the people in the other services weren’t those who couldn’t get into the Air Force and civilians weren’t people who couldn’t join the military. And they say the Marines are the proud.

Now we live in Idaho. With two rescue cats and two and a half Spinoni. Our son brings his Spinone over now and then. Spinoni are addicting.

To escape the zoo atmosphere at home, I work at Eddie Bauer. Yes, I do spend my whole paycheck there every single month. 

That’s my life in a nutshell…childhood, husband, kid, job, cats and dogs. Oh, yeah, I write too.
