I was born in California, near L.A. but grew up in the Chicago suburbs. I have lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Ashland, Oregon and now Mount Shasta, California. I needed to follow my heart and soul to be around like minded people who appreciate the arts and spirituality. I am grateful to be around such beauty daily and it shows in my work.
I have been a Creative Writer most of my life and I have a strong passion to write for and about children and animals. I have cherished my previous experience as an editor and have met some amazing authors in my lifetime. I have many published articles at North State Parent magazine. They can be viewed below!

My Published Articles
It is because of my children that I am who I am today. They have been beautiful mirrors of my potential, and my weaknesses.... showing me who I am, and inspiring me to be the best ME I can be. They have taught me more than life itself has. It may not happen for everyone - but I learned what my triggers were, in a way that I began to choose NOT to be triggered... and also to see myself through the eyes of my children, and my inner child... Always trying to be conscious of the reality of unconditional love. They have shown me how to love with my whole heart, and to heal those parts that I was not sharing.... stepping up to what they needed, and of course exactly what I needed. I feel that I have had past lives with them, and am so honored they CHOSE to dance with me again. Wise young (and old) souls that I am still in awe of, loving every easy and tough moment. I cannot describe the love they have shown me, and taught me. It is a bond like no other, and honestly the intensity is not understood by all. I knew from my own childhood that my most important role in this life was going to be being a mother... not for my own fulfillment, but for my spiritual growth, and to raise my vibration to be more of the soul, not the human. I cherish my grown children, Tiara 28, and Jonah 33. I hope to someday be honored to be called grandma and apply all of that wonderful wisdom and unconditional love on another generation of absolutely gorgeous souls with such big hearts. My children have taught me to be ME, and awake and alive. They have taught me to love with every cell of my body, and feel every emotion.... and helped me evolve. They are my higher education, my rocks, my sages, my soul food, and such a gift to the world. Just by being them - human, yet wise beyond this universe. It is very hard not to live near them, but I gave them roots and wings, and they filled my heart so I can feel them close by always! ~ Infinite Love & Gratitude
