Living in the woods of Northwest Montana I have plenty of inspiration for my stories. When I’m not writing I’m hiking with my 4-legged kids, Cooper and Sara. Or I might be kayaking one of the many small lakes, or the big lake, the Flathead. And there’s always yard work living in the trees. And I have to work, of course, but I’m lucky and get to work at home. It’s taken me a long time to get to “my place” and I’m grateful for every needle I have to rake, every weed that needs pulled, and every deck that needs shoveled through the long winters, all of those chores giving me thinking time for my next story!
