I am a work from home mom with five children (ages 19 down to 13). I have been a freelance writer and graphic designer since 1990, and a freelance web designer since 2005.

I have published a few books on Amazon Kindle, Including Shopping and Cooking Frugally, Beyond the Chore Chart, and Quiet Times in Loud Households.
