As I was growing up in Northern Washington State, I loved to write mysteries that starred my Cat Max, and Puppy Agnes. They were always up to no good but learned a lesson along the way. As an adult, I never lost my passion for writing. I now have 3 kids and, believe it or not, we all write together! Reading and writing are my life, and I hope to bring you a little bit of joy into yours!ABOUT THE
