Born and raised on the shores of Lake Erie in and outside of the Gem City. Attended college in the same county, and then left to travel - first with the Army, and then teaching English overseas. Married for 26 years, before a gray divorce. Happily co-raising two teen daughters - one in college. Had a very eclectic career path, before settling teaching - currently teaching high school in a women's prison. I used to write in high school and college - just restarted a few months ago - new inspiration.
