I am a writer. But more importantly, I'm a mom, which is the best thing I could have ever hoped for in my life. I have three kids who amaze me every day with their little quips of humor and intelligence. I can't really applaud myself for how great they are, though, since I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing when it comes to mothering children. But the fact that they're turning out so great and I'm the one that hangs out with them all day makes me feel pretty good about myself.
I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah where I was spoiled to have the huge Wasatch mountains in my backyard. I graduated from the University of Utah with a major in English Literature but that's boring. The exciting part was when I met and fell in love with the boy of my dreams. It didn't take us long to figure out that life could never be as good apart as it was together so we got married and have been living happily ever after ever since.
One of my favorite things about myself is that I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (aka Mormons) and I am extremely happy to be so. I truly don't know where I'd be without my faith and even though I have a lot of characteristics that don't necessarily have anything to do with the church you should know that everything I am and everything I do in life is for and because of its truths.
So there you have it. I'm a wife, mother, writer and a Mormon. While my husband works his brains out I take care of our kids and conjure up storylines and characters and romantic turns of events. And someday, if we're lucky, we'll be as happy as we are now.
