I have a B.S. from Ohio State University. I am a mom to 3 grown sons; and I have 6 cats and 3 lovely dogs--all rescues! I love the wonder of nature and animals, and the endless possibilities of human imagination. I am a children's book author and my first book, 'Hallie the Harvester Ant: Never Give Up,' was inspired by true events experienced while unemployed. Despite our hardships and fears we can't lose our courage but we must be determined to keep going no matter what fearful circumstances we face.
Don't Quit. Don't Give Up. Don't let go of your dreams!
I am an avid nature and animal lover. I volunteer much of my time helping rescue shelter dogs and cats, and I am an active supporter of animal welfare issues. I love long walks with my family and my dogs; watching wildlife and listening to the sweet song of birds in the woods; and I love to read. I am a fan of several genres, but my favorites include military history, biographies, true crime, nature/animal books, and, of course, children's books.
