I am an indie author and I live near Lake St. Clair in Michigan. I began writing when I was in high school. Now I write every day even if it's just a few notes about a character or plot.   

The current stories are historical, and I research the era portrayed in my stories.  The local library and Michigan statewide library systems are wonderful resources. I particularly like the Grosse Pointe Public Library Central Branch. 


When I'm not writing, I read - a lot! I enjoy traveling, sailing, and spending time with my husband and friends. I also like to exercise and do needlepoint.
