I love my life. It’s a wild, wacky, wonderful roller coaster of a ride full of fun and laughter. And, like yours, it’s also jammed with jolting ups and downs, sharp turns, and inside-out loops that make my head spin. But you know what makes my heart tingle and keeps me living a life worth loving? Humor. And, believe me, I see it everywhere, whether it’s reminding myself that “Life Is All About How You Handle Plan B” or acknowledging that “Real Living Begins Where Your Comfort Zone Ends.” I can justify a certain addiction by telling myself that “Behind Every Successful Woman Is a Substantial Amount of Chocolate,” and I absolutely “Never Underestimate the Power of a Hissie Fit.” My bottom line is “Pretending to Be a Normal Person Day After Day Is Exhausting.” Wouldn’t you agree?
I guess when it comes down to it my philosophy is that life should be good, whatever it takes. My hope is that my stories and illustrations make you laugh, encourage you to take yourself less seriously, and give you the ability to see that, in spite of any hairpin turns on your
particular roller coaster, you truly are living a life worth loving.
So sure, I’m a tad wacky and just shy of crazy. But I'm 61 years old, I dance the hula and live in a funky little town called New Smyrna Beach right on the oceans edge and my studio is right across the street. I eat way too much chocolate, (I like the dark stuff), I ride a little red scooter around town and I dance the Hula twice a week with a bunch of the most Wonderful Wacky Women God ever created. I am blessed to be married to the love of my life, "Big Al," for 32 years. We have five grown children and 15 grandkids who love me as much as I adore them. No, my life is not perfect but this I believe with all my heart: Life doesn't need to be perfect to be wonderful. This is the Wild Wacky Wonderful life I lead, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
