I am a chef by trade, a mother by choice, and a writer from the moment I learned to print. I studied literature and creative writing for 2 years at the University of Minnesota. I hold an Associate's degree in culinary arts from the Philadelphia Restaurant School. Over the past 16 years, I've earned a "Master's Degree" from the school of Stay at Home Mom's. I am a newly single Mom, and it is time for me to get back to the business of writing.
