I enjoy people, but preferably two or three at a time. I can handle large groups and public speaking, but unlike an extrovert, I find large social gatherings exhausting rather than energizing. One of the bonuses of being a friend of mine is that you’ll never have to feel guilty about canceling out on social plans with me. I really, really mean it when I say, “Don’t worry about it. I’m fine staying home with a book.
I live in a small town in a rural area in Michigan, with my husband Gary, who is the consummate extrovert. I have two lovely daughters and one ugly one. No, just kidding. Just the two, and they both are lovely. I spent some years as a reporter and then as a managing editor at a small daily newspaper. From there I moved on to work at a university in publications and marketing, and I taught a few writing classes as well.
I am super happy now to be able to go to work in my pajamas if I choose.
When I’m not writing, I’m usually reading, watching old movies, talking to friends or family, eating something I shouldn’t, or staring out the window at the river that runs past our house. I love hearing from readers, and I answer every email I receive.
