About the Author

My writing is inspired by a life filled with two kids, three marriages, 17 homes, and 32 different jobs. Now a resident of Phoenix, AZ, Ilived year-round on a houseboat in Minnesotafor five years. I've worked in how-to publishing for fifteen years, but even at the age of 12, I knew I was a storyteller. I whole-heartedly embrace the creative process and work to perfect Pippi on the Mississippi.
