Hello, I am so excited to be at the Tucson Festival of Books 2019. I am a native of Southern Arizona born and raised in Tucson. I am the oldest of four children and began telling wild stories when my siblings came into the world as a way to help entertain them. As a young adult, I worked in assisted living, and alongside hospice. I would listen to the tails of peoples lives and loved to write them down as a way to remember them. After the birth of my second child, I decided to leave the medical field to raise my children; we traveled around the United States creating stories and learning so much from the people and the cultures around us. It's true every place you go has hidden treasures right before your eyes. We traveled a lot moving every couple of years. I have lived in Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Oklahoma, Maryland and New York. I started looking into the possibility of publishing my books about three years ago. I am not formally trained in writing so I wasn't sure being an author would be a good fit. That changed when I met a fellow creative, who told me, "You don't need a degree to be creative." So I assembled a team and started writing the fantastic adventures that were demanding to freed.
