In Kindergarten I wanted to become a veterinarian, have ten kids, and a hundred cats. Then I went to first grade and learned how to write. It took a few decades, but I'm living my dream and loving it. I did end up with a wonderful husband, four amazing kids, and a you'd-squish-him-if-you-could-catch-him grandson. No cats. After a dozen years living around the world, we're happily settled on the edge of the Sonoran Desert in Mesa, Arizona.
