I have spent the last ten years being a mom and a homemaker. Prior to that I was an English teacher with a Masters degree. Before that I worked with animals in both rescues and animal hospitals. Kids and animals, those are pretty much the two core elements of my skill set. But deep down? When I look back at my 41 years and wonder, what would I have done if I did everything over? I would have taken that tractor driving course at UC Davis, for one, and I would have started writing a hell of a lot earlier. So here I am, starting over again, embracing the new, and embarking on the independent publishing journey.
