Living on the east coast, I love to travel to Maine. Just far enough away to enjoy time with my wonderful family without the weight of work or competing schedules, but close enough that most of the short time to escape is not taken by travel. The beautiful scenery and abundance of woods and rocky beaches offers peace and tranquility to me and my family. I am the mother of three wonderful children and work in a law firm. Writing is something I ever thought I could do, my vast work experience is more in accounting and legal work dealing with figures and asset allocation, but writing became a way to allow my mind to escape for short periods of time while my body stayed anchored to care for two dying parents and ensuring that I could still provide a warm and loving home to my children who agreed to be uprooted to help me care for their grandparents.
