I am an Office Manager and aspiring writer living in Lake County, IL. I grew up on the banks of the Fox River, swimming, fishing and spending time with family. My parents encouraged me to pursue my dreams, which I did with gusto, working on Dude Ranches in Colorado, started my own business raising quail and selling quail eggs and driving across country seeking adventure. I settled down long enough to be a stay at home mom with a blended family and an animal menagerie. I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, my family, writing, painting, road trips and the wonders of nature.
The writing bug bit in grade school when my science fiction short story was published in Scholastic Magazine. I have been told that writing is how I process life because I love to write about the lessons I learned and discoveries I have made along the way. Now, I love to share bits and pieces of my life’s journey on my blog, http://ohlucylordhelpme.blogspot.com/, if by chance it will inspire others to remember, to laugh and to hope.
