Born, raised, and still reside in a small town in Southwestern Virginia named Parrott. My two amazing daughters are my heart, Madi who is 10 years old and Olivia who is 6 years old. I graduated from Pulaski Co. High School in 1994 with studies in business, marketing, child care, and drama arts. I am 36 years old as of November 22, 2012 and have the experience of someone who has lived 100 years but am in perfect health and don't feel a day over 21. I have enjoyed writing short stories and poetry since I was 10 years old. I also love to read books and memoirs, enjoying several authors such as Mary Karr of 'The Liar's Club' and 'Cherry', Jeannette Walls of 'The Glass Castle', Janet Fitch of 'White Oleander' and 'Paint it Black', and many other well known authors such as Judy Blume.
