About the Author

I am a wife and mother and enjoy nature and what the earth can offer. As I utilize the earths bounty I also try in every way possible to give back. I raise my children in a small area of the Okanogan Highlands in Washington State while writing books, tending to my farm and blogging about my adventures in life. "Everything life can bring you is an Adventure! You just have to grab those opportunities and run with them as far as they will go." "Remember to try everything that presents itself to you, if you don't, you will never know the outcome." "Always treat others the way you want to be treated, even if you don't get along with them. One day good Karma will come back on you tenfold as long as you keep sending good out." "Keep positive throughout your life and positive things will happen." I love to write and I love to share what I learn with as many people as I can possibly reach. I hope you enjoy and share your experiences in all aspect of your life.
