Welcome to the Crew

Hello World and Welcome to the Crew —

First thing you should know about me is I’m quirky and I’ve given myself permission to own it. When I introduce my little family I often tell people “And this is my little motley crew.” So when I say, “Welcome to the Crew” I mean it.

There are three things I love to do in life: 1) write, 2) take pictures, and 3) be a mom.  Am I perfect at any of those? Of course not. But I am learning and growing the best I can. I have written for magazines, newspapers, and anthologies around the United States. I’ve also been a portrait and freelance photographer from time to time. And then there are my kids–my rambunctious, tenacious, brilliantly awesome autism spectrum kids. They have taught me so much. They have also pulled me out of my comfort zone more often than writing and photography combined, and I adore them for it.

My intent with this blog is to pass on what I am learning in all three areas that I love. I hope that, in time, you will find your passion as well. Good luck and welcome to our Crew.
