I'm a Baby Boomer -- born and bred in the Midwest with a brief stint in New York City.


As a young teen, I began writing professionally for a daily newspaper and received various awards for my work including national recognition for the youth section I edited.

My bachelor's degree in Journalism is from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  I have also worked professionally in television, radio, and in corporate communications where I edited a regional magazine.

My Faith and family are most important in my life.  I like to spend time at home...or somewhere in Italy.  I enjoy reading.  I occasionally draw or paint.  And I have a like-dislike relationship with golf.  My words to live by:

"Thy Will be done."
