I’m a mom and writer from a northwest suburb of Chicago. I grew up in Naperville, Illinois. My parents imparted a great work ethic and a deep appreciation for all green living things. Including the weeds in my front yard.
Early on, I taught myself to draw, albeit badly, and had aspirations to become an editorial cartoonist and syndicated comic strip artist, and dreamed of working at “Mad” magazine.
Oh, and then there’s the Airedale Terrier. Kirby, a.k.a. the Kirbster, the pooch that failed obedience school three times.
