Hello, I’m M!
First and foremost, I want to thank you, dear friend, for taking the time to read one (or more) of my books. Writing is a very humbling and personal experience, and it’s something I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember. My mom likes to tell the story that I wrote my first book before I could even print the alphabet. I dictated a story about our family cats — she wrote it down, bound it into a book, and I illustrated it. I think I even have that first picture book stashed away somewhere in my attic. One of these days, I’ll have to dust it off and share it with you!
In middle school, I loved to write poetry and short stories, even entering several pieces in writing contests along the way. By the time I’d graduated high school, I’d penned a couple of novels. In college, I tried majoring in journalism, but quickly realized writing non-fiction was NOT the same as writing fiction and it saddens me to this day that I didn’t realize creative writing was an actual major. Regardless, I continued my love of creative writing throughout adulthood, but it wasn’t until my children started getting old enough to entertain themselves on the weekends that I found the time and energy to pursue writing as an actual career. And now, because of you, dear reader friend, I get to pursue my passion for telling stories daily. You will never know, how truly, eternally grateful I am to be given that gift.
Personally, I am a simple Midwestern girl and the proud wife of a newly-retired UPS man (we met because he was my actual UPS driver—great story, I’ll share it someday, I promise!). I’m a mom of four (two grown-and-flown adult children and twin sixteen-year-olds still at home), plus a stepmom to two wonderful adult daughters. Two of our adult children have recently married, and my oldest son and his wife have just given us our first grandson, whom I absolutely adore. I’m a fur mom to a variety of pets. I love watching football with my family on Sunday afternoons, doing DIY house remodeling projects, gardening in the summer, and canning salsa in the fall!
If you’d like to keep up with me, I’d love it if you signed up for my newsletter. I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop!
Forever thankful for you, dear reader friend,
