40 years ago I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. My father worked for a chemical plant. My mother was a realtor. My younger sister is my little sister no matter how old she is. Hubby and I started dating in high school. I was a senior and he a sophomore. 🙂 After college, I landed a job in Atlanta and he in Indianapolis. Many frequent flyer miles. My love for writing peaked during this time.
I eventually moved to Indy and he proposed. Six months later we moved to Detroit for soon-to-be Hubby’s job transfer. We had a beautiful fairytale wedding after 13 years together. When we decided to start a family, I learned I had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Hubby never left my side as we battled it and won. Two years after, I had a beautiful 9 lb. boy.
With The Deuce’s birth, we wanted to be near our families again. Prayers were answered when Hubby was transferred to Shreveport. 3½ hours away from Baton Rouge but still Louisiana. Nine months later, Hubby landed a brand new job in Slidell. 1-1½ hours drive to Baton Rouge and very close to New Orleans. With all the moves, I changed jobs often. But I longed to write full-time.
Slidell has been home for 5 years now. Hubby and I are enjoying new career paths. I’m finally a full-time writer. All it took was going east, north, and back down south. My life is a triangle and I like it that way.
