I am a wife, mother and full time writer.   

I have a hard time focusing on one project at a time.  I tend to work on many things at once.  I am the kind of person who wakes up in the middle of the night and can't go back to sleep unless I get up and write down the thoughts in my head.  

I have many areas of interest, as far as my writing goes.  I think you can see that in my blogs and articles.

I feel the need to help others.  I have gone through many life struggles and I feel I have things to share.  

I truly believe that everything, good or bad, happens for a reason.  I can't believe that the bad things happen for no reason, thus I feel the need to try to encourage others with those struggles I've had in my own life.
