I am a lifelong Hoosier that currently lives in Indianapolis with my daughter, son, and DVR. I won't reveal my exact age, but I'm closer to 20 than 60. I have an advanced degree in sarcasm from the University of Life. I began storytelling as a preschooler. My Barbies could often be found with full body casts (made from tissue and tape) from ski accidents or pregnant (a cotton ball stuffed under their clothes) - courtesy of watching All My Children with my mother. Jack & Diane is my first novel.
