I married my high school sweetheart, had two kids, divorced seven years later. I attended Saddleback Community College in Mission Viejo
, California, then transferred to Brigham Young University
and received my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Humanities
, English Emphasis. I loved school so much I took an eclectic mix of subjects and ended up with a minor in Communications,
and extra class credits in: Philosophy, Spanish (I am semi-fluent), Drama, Teacher Prep classes, and horseback riding.
I've worked at several different jobs but my favorites, the two I plan to focus on for my life are writing novels (hence,
this site), and editing for clients. (See my site: Editing For You!
for more information.)
My husband, Craig, and I, after finding the One Interest we both share, horses, decided to start CJ Foundation Quarter Horses
raising, training and selling registered Quarter Horses
. Other photos of our horses are available on my site on the Pets
page and also on a page devoted only to my horses
, as well.
I fell in love with Husky dogs years ago when we got our Husky-mix dog, Shadow. I have been blessed to now own
a beautiful purebred black and white Husky named Keeta and now have a male purebred Husky (red, named Sunny) to get a
breeding pair. Photos of these dogs are available on my Pets
page as well as a page
devoted solely to the dogs.
