All About Me

I was born an old soul, so my mother tells me; I have always loved books, gardening, writing and painting. On the road to A Master’s Degree in English Literature, I had not yet considered marriage before I met my future husband nor even held a baby before my first.I was destined to have nine children.

I write quirky slice-of-life stories about raising nine kids on a hobby farm as well as  articles on life and the world around me.

People look at me, their eyebrows shoot up, their mouths drop open and they sputter,

”YOU had 9 children??

This is because I am 5’ 1” and weigh 104 lbs. I was pregnant or nursing for 17 years without a break. I have been pregnant 10 times and I am healthy and happy and I have my BBB back. (That would be my Before Babies Body).

My husband and I raised 9 children on a hobby farm and discovered fulfilment and joy. When the words The Joy Of Mothering on a Hobby Farm popped into my head as a subtitle for my short stories it was like an epiphany for me because those few words verbalized my experience living with little people.
