I live in St. Louis, MO, but my heart and soul hang out at the beach. I am a multi-genre, award winning writer and member of St. Louis Writer's Guild. I am a seasoned pre-k teacher, on line writing instructor, wife, mother, Nana to ten. Hopefully, something I say will make you smile, further your writing career, or inspire you to write from the heart, too.

I am writing snippets for my memoir, and I keep coming up with the same theme: the many times we moved during my childhood. My connecting thread seems to be residences we lived in, which always leads me back to my playhouse, or as I like to call it, My Great Escape.
Although I was a very assertive 10 year old (okay, bossy) my playhouse, a back porch, was the only "home" where I was in charge when my parents' marriage was unraveling and nothing seemed certain.
