Raised in Idaho with outdated morals and manners, my mother instilled in me the desire to always be better and do better than yesterday. There is always room for improvement. If you ever find yourself in a place where you don’t like the person you see in the mirror. Find out why and change that. It isn’t easy, but it is worth it.
I have been privileged to meet wonderful, strange and unique people in my travels across this great country. I have learned from every person I have met, every place I have lived, and every job I have worked. I have had the pleasure of living in Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, Chicago (I consider Chicago a state all its own), Florida and Georgia.
I have worked as a waitress, cashier, bartender, cocktail waitress and danced on bars, participated in wet t-shirt contests and danced until four a.m. I have also worked in Catalog Design and Layout, as an order picker, shipping clerk, bookkeeper, customer service representative, receptionists, and as an assistant manager and manager in different retail environments.
I have taken writing classes and been told I was in the top 5% of the people the instructor coached. I have been a reset specialist, a roofer, a journeyman electrician and sold insurance, but my love has always been writing. I will spend hours crafting the perfect ‘Thank You’ note or ‘Birthday’ greeting and have thrown away countless beginnings to such. Why? Because nothing has the power to make or break like a word.
I hope you enjoy reading the fruits of this passion as much as I have enjoyed putting them onto paper.
I currently reside in the tiny town of Smelterville, Idaho in what we call the Silver Valley in Idaho. It's on Highway 90 about 40 or so miles from the Montana border. We have no mail deliver, if you miss the stop sign off the freeway you will run into the city park. City Hall will be missed in less than a blink, but we have no traffic tie ups and the residents get excited when Huckleberry season comes around. We hunt Bear, Elk, Duck, and whatever we have to stay alive and eat well. Cell phones are the main form of communication, if you can get a signal. If you see someone standing in the middle of the street gesturing wildly, they are only having a conversation. Service wasn't working inside the house at that moment. The closest motel is 13 miles east in Kellogg, Idaho. If you want quiet and history, come see us sometime.
I frequently post pictures on FaceBook and infrequently post to Twitter, but pop in and say hi. I would love to let you in on my newest releases and the funniest things happening in our neck of the woods. From giant moths almost the size of my fist, to stray kittens and my flowers in bloom, I let everyone see the beauty.
