About the Author

I am not your typical grandmother… first, I don’t like to be called Grandma, I prefer Nana and second, I don’t believe anyone should act their age. So let’s start with my four grandchildren, one girl and three boys, ages 4-10 years. My daughters don’t like that babysitting is not my forte. I love to be with them don’t misunderstand, but I prefer to have them on my own terms. We spend a lot of time doing family activities and I love that we all live within two miles of each other.

I never thought I would be a writer when I was young, in fact I didn’t like to read. I was an outside girl, riding my bike, swimming, climbing trees, and making up my own stories as I played.

We lived in the San Joaquin Valley where it was hot in the summer and foggy in the winter. My brother and I were close and spent most of our free time together. My dad owned a nursery and we were required to work watering the plants and pulling weeds. (Fun stuff).

But for the most part I had a normal childhood and teenage life. High school consisted of cheerleading, competing on the swim team, and making grades, so that I’d be accepted to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

I met and married the love of my life while working as an EMT. When the girls came along I stayed home and raised them. My husband found his passion in I.T. (thank goodness)

Today, I am a high school swim coach for one of the largest schools in our community. My biggest success has been being the age group coach to a future Olympian. He won medals in the 1500 (2nd) and 400 (3rd) freestyles.

My writing career began when I broke my leg and was not allowed to walk. I had to do something to purge my wild imagination and energy. I discovered the computer, (okay a little late, but it could spell). I spent the next six weeks reading every book I could find on how to write. I read and wrote every day until I could tell a story. When I felt I was ready I began researching and writing my own
