About this author

I received an MFA in studio art from Southern Illinois University, and have been a professional artist and business owner since graduating. My career as an artist became challenged by Multiple Sclerosis several years ago as the disease minimized the use of my right hand. Struggling to stay creative, I trained my left-hand so I could continue to produce art; while at the same time beginning work on The Bunco Club. I’ve always loved to write so when one door closed, I jumped at the chance to open a new one. In order to hone my writing skills, I have attended several workshops at the renowned Iowa Summer Writing Festival.

I live in the Chicago suburbs with my husband, Bob, and we have one adult son.


I just had to share some photos of private libraries that I found on the internet. Some have the owner's name but others are unnamed...all are pics of darn cool libraries! Let's be honest, wouldn't we love to have one of these in our home--right next to our sewing room!
