Writing is a new journey for me that began in 2015, when my friends suggested that I take up quilting. My husband and I had just moved permanently to Fort Myers, Florida, and the thought of laying under a hot quilt didn’t feel appealing. After working in various manufacturing management, industrial engineering, and project management roles for many years, I felt that my right-brain was tired. Creative writing was an opportunity to do something completely new, and do it in my home, out on my lanai, or at the beach.

So, a little more about me. I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and attended the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where I received a Business Administration degree.  Years later, I received a Masters in Manufacturing Management degree from General Motors Institute (GMI), now called Kettering University.  I retired from Delphi Corporation which is a division of General Motors, and later worked for Plymouth Tube Company and Rockwell Automation.

Finally sick of winter, we planned to move to Fort Myers Beach, but ended up in a high-rise in downtown Fort Myers that allowed dogs. To our surprise, we loved the constant activity and music that downtown offered, and met a number of wonderful neighbors.

Thanks for stopping by the website. I hope my books give you some happiness, suspense, and relaxation from your own crazy lives.
