The question people ask the most is when on earth I ever find time to write. The honest answer is that many days, I don’t. I have six babies, see? And they keep a Mom most mighty busy. But somehow, by some miracle, my genetic code allows for me to exist on minimal hours of sleep. For the most part, my first book was written in between the hours of 11 PM, and 3 AM. My husband swears I took years off my life by staying up so late. And perhaps he’s right. But what’s a girl to do? When there are stories to be written, I can’t very well not write them. I’m not very good at staying up late these days, so I’ve started writing early in the morning, before children are awake. I never thought I’d be a morning person, but there’s truly something magical about 5:30 in the morning. . . (Did I really just say that?)
I’ve lived in Western North Carolina all my life. I love it here and hope I don’t ever have a reason to leave. I love to hike with my family and spend time outside. I love to eat fabulous food. I love to swim and bike and run.
