Bio

To let you know a little bit about me, I have answered a few questions. You’re welcome.

  • If you could be an expert in one area, what would it be? You mean besides the areas I already AM an expert in? I am an expert in a lot of areas, as we all are, and we should remind ourselves of that once in a while. However, if a genie came out of a bottle and granted me one wish, it would be that I could have a great set of pipes to belt out old standards with in-front-of my very own Big Band. I’d be a jazz singer!

  • What is your favorite beverage? Tea! Regular old-fashioned orange pekoe black tea with milk. Real milk, not that powdered white fake-cream stuff. I drink it by the pot.
  • What is your favorite dessert or sweet treat? The quickest way to my heart is through a slice (or three) of Rich, Dark, Moist, Chocolaty Chocolate Cake with lots of Icing! Especially if it comes from The Chocolate Claim. Oh, and my friend Dee makes a wicked-to-die-for trifle!
  • Who do you look up to? People who are kind, thoughtful, logical, responsible, well-spoken, educated, creative and who are in charge of their own lives. Also people who can bake without eating it all.
  • Who is your favorite author and/or what is your favorite book? When I was a child, my favourite author was Gertrude Chandler Warner and her Box Car Children series. It isn’t hard to close my eyes and put myself right back into my childhood bed, under the covers with a flashlight and one of her books. As an adult, I read everything I can get my hands on. In particular, women’s fiction, science fiction, and historical fiction.

  • Anything else? I love my garden and I make jam. I love to camp and fish, sit with a good book and visit with friends. I’m a writer and a musician and a mom. I’ve been happily married for more than 36 years, and I have  a dog and a cat. I enjoy yoga and bike riding. I walk a lot. I  produced and choreographed five full theater dance shows during my dancing career. I live a full life with many interests and many blessings.

Ya can’t hit 50 without learning a few things. I’ll share some of them with you on the blog.
