I grew up on a farm in rural Illinois with a wonderful Christian family. I have a twin sister, Sandy, and an older brother, Darren. I went to a small high school in Bluffs, Illinois. I was active in MANY things. I played basketball, volleyball, and softball. I was also involved in band, student council, National Honor Society, and various other clubs.

I received my Bachelor's in Education/Biology from Illinois College where I also continued being active in sports; volleyball, basketball, tennis, and track. I received my Master's in Elementary Education and Reading From Western Illinois University. I have been a teacher and coach for many years.

I married Frank Wood in 2004 and moved to Missouri. We now have two active boys, Frank Jr. and Gary. I have had a passion for writing my entire life. I published my first poem when I was around ten years old. I enjoy writing for children as well as poetry, plays, magazine articles, musical lyrics and musical composition. I hope to continue writing for many years. The most important things to me are my faith in God, my family, and my friends.
