About

I am a 46 yr old female, born and raised in Bristol, CT.

I attended a semester of college at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY and another semester at the University of CT.

While both were a great time, it only proved to me what I already knew, I am NOT academically driven. My creative soul does not care about grades. It never has cared! It probably never will care!

I am more inclined to learn whatever I am interested in at the moment, grade or no grade. Driven might be a better description. There is no stopping me once inspiration hits!

In 1992 a childhood dream of mine was fulfilled. I was married and we took a 1 year honeymoon to travel the US by motorhome. We managed to visit the 48 continental US states, Canada and Mexico, traveling a total…

In 1992 a childhood dream of mine was fulfilled. I was married and we took a 1 year honeymoon to travel the US by motorhome. We managed to visit the 48 continental US states, Canada and Mexico, traveling a total of 34,500 miles! We visited 23 national parks and probably as many national monuments and other landmarks.
The experience, the people and the sites have forever changed me!

My husband was an aspiring writer and finally had the book about our travels published in 2009. It's called "Strapped into an American Dream" by Glenn Maynard

Soon after the trip was completed we decided to settle in Thornton, CO. After 5 years together we divorced. He moved back to CT and I stayed in Colorado. We still remain friends. I wish him nothing but the best!

In 1999 I met another man, this time on the internet. He too was born and raised in Bristol, CT though we did not know each other back then. He had been living in TX for a number of years.

Shortly after meeting we eloped and I found myself pregnant. This was another life long dream come true!! I did not want to miss a moment of it! Knowing we could not survive on one income in Colorado we decided to relocate.

In the spring of 2001 we moved to North Carolina.

My creative drive had been put on the shelf once I became a mother. It wasn't until recently that the sleeping giant awoke!

Now I find myself here! The ideas are plenty, my time...at a premium. But I am happier than I have been in years!

I have everything I have ever wanted! An amazing child, a roof over our heads, and some time to express my God given talents!

Who could ask for more?!
