Born and raised in the San Joaquin Valley of California, my parents owned a bookstore and I have always been intrigued with the written word. I received my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential through Chapman University and a master?s degree in Education from Grand Canyon University. I taught elementary school for 20 years and my two children have since grown up. Currently, I have decided to try my hand at writing, using my experience in teaching as a starting point. I am also managing my husband?s consulting business in the Silicon Valley.
