Personal Information:

I am the oldest of 6 children.  Most of my family still lives in Washington state, so many of our vacations are to visit family there.  I also loved visiting New York City with my husband and hope to travel there again soon.

I love Reading, especially action/thrillers, mysteries, and biographies.  My favorite authors are David Baldacci, John Grisham, and Sue Grafton. 

I also love theatre and enjoy reading and watching plays and musicals.  I was a theatre geek in high school and love helping out with the shows that my husband directs.  Most of our kids are involved in theatre too.
