I grew up in a small farming town in Iowa. I currently live in a mountain cabin with a dog named Leia and a cat named George, close to Smoky Mountain National Park in western North Carolina. I have one son, Colyn, and one grandson, Devon, who live in Ilinois. I am a retired Occupational Therapist. I have many interests and hobbies, including reading, quilting, singing, and writing. I took ballroom dance classes for about 10 years with my ex-husband, and love to dance. I really enjoyed "Read to Raven", a reading program with my certified therapy dog, Raven, that I did at libraries in IA, CO, and NC. I really miss both dancing and pet therapy, but am excited about building my website, and that will keep me out of trouble for the present. Perhaps I'll even meet some other folks in the community who love to dance, who knows?
