A multitasker from the word go, I juggle a variety of interests and projects at once. For example, I’ve published five books that could not be more different. I’m currently working on two more picture books, two middle grade novels and one mainstream novel. I am an early adopter of technology, volunteer as an Extension Master Gardener, created the first completely online English 101-102 sequence at the University of Kentucky, worked with the Kentucky Attorney General to develop and implement cyber-bullying and Internet safety presentations for K-12, mentor other writers, and am known locally as the “Fig Whisperer.” Whew!
And in my spare time I play ukulele with the Hot Cookies of the Bluegrass, and love to sing.
I live in Lexington, Kentucky with my husband and a very spoiled Pomeranian, who is periodically nonplussed when a foster usurps his territory.
