Slinging the coffee to pay the bills while writing, writing, and writing. I was published in 2004 (www.publishamerica.com) under S. J. Stowe's "Nella Famiglia", a novella about Frank Walker, a mafioso's nephew, who is led into the "family" life to save his only son. (Step)Mother of three, wife to Stephen, and Mommy to two dogs, there's never a dull (or free) moment. I spend time acting and directing mostly at Elkhart Civic Theatre (www.elkhartcivictheatre.org) and ... did I mention? Writing, writing, writing.
