About this author

I live in Utah, and have my entire life. I have 6 kids and 9 grandkids. We're very close, every Wednesday we have Papa and Nana night. It's utter chaos and I love it.

My husband and I love to travel. The ideas are so abundant. I keep all the city maps and everything else I can get my hands on.

Apparently I don't know how to reply on these things. LOL.

We're doing okay. I have had to go back to full time work so writing is well, not happening. I just started a new job this weekend. But we are doing well.

How are you?
