About MeFrom 2007 to 2010, I suffered accidental Toxic Injury (also called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or Environmental Illness). But, the forced time in bed has given me time to write. It has been such a blessing to work on my children's books and stories!
I love: God, family & friends, outdoors, gardening, animals, writing, reading, photography, cooking, music, dance, bare feet, long skirts, lavender & yellow, and chocolate.

Last month I broke my wrist, which has meant three doctor appointments so far. (It’s healing great, though! Not any slower than normal! 🙂 ) But the normal scents and unavoidable chemical cleaners/disinfectants at the hospital were really tough to … Continue reading
