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.

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.

Sheree Logemann fukai I love these books. These ladies all have become friends and I love feeling like I am part of their quilting circle. I always feel like i could sit down and chat with all of them.
