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.

Guest post by a friend of mine The Crock Pot Method of Sharing Ideas with Others I really love these ideas! And it could apply to much more than just mold illness or MCS. My friend writes: I’ve been discouraged … Continue reading
The car speeds down the highway, splashing a bit of water. I look out at the rain on the fields. Then I focus on the raindrops on the window, not sure why I am fascinated by the trails they make … Continue reading
