My husband and I live in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains in Blairsville. I've been published in Focus on the Family, Country Woman magazine, Cappers, Grit, The North Georgia News, National Home Gardening magazine, and other publications. I love the outdoors: camping, fishing, birdwatching, exploring the forests, and sleeping next to a babbling brook. I love making things with my own hands. I read everyday so I can be updated on what goes on in the world and ever learning.
