I grew up in Virginia and now live outside of Atlanta, Georgia with my husband Mike and two children, Sarah and Jack. I have a B.A. in English from Hollins University and have worked in accounting, counseled runaway teens and written for local publications. When I am not writing, I help people publish their own stories and photos as a Heritage Makers Personal Publishing Coach (<a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.MemorablePhotoBooks.com">www.MemorablePhotoBooks.com</a>). I also enjoy hiking, photography, watching movies with my family, spending time with friends, and talking frequently on the phone with my mother and four sisters in Virginia.
