One-Line Bio

Attorney. Wordsmith. Author of Hanging By a Thread Blog. Mom. Wife. Talker. Lover of Fine Chocolate. Passion Driven. Hire me to Write or Research.


I'm mom to two darling, crazy, silly, spirited, brilliant boys, ages 7 years and 5 years, two very large dogs & three cats. I am also a wife, an attorney and a domestic goddess (Oh, who am I kidding? I could really use a cleaning service, a gardener, a nanny and an assistant.)

I live in Minneapolis, but I'm originally a Texan. I'm a graduate of the University of Oklahoma School of Law, and I'm a member of the Oklahoma Bar. I'm a full-time work-at-home-mom. I have worked as a judicial law clerk, an attorney editor for a legal publisher & now as an independent contractor & professional writer. I love to research and write about almost any topic.

I read magazines from back to front; I can't blow up balloons or any other inflatable items; I love chocolate, coffee, tuna sandwiches & pizza; I have never been able to figure out a yo-yo; I have an excellent memory; I am usually running late; I love to have coffe dates with friends and just talk and talk; & I'm a sucker for an animal at a humane society.

The photography you see on ML was taken by my Darling Boys or by me. Thanks to DH for all of his technical help & his continued aid & support in this endeavor; without his help I wouldn't have the time to write.

I'm always cooking up new ideas and plans, and I'm always available for freelance writing projects. My dream gig is a regular column in a major newspaper, magazine and/or website where I get to spout off my opinions, advice, important information and random thoughts and get paid for it. I'm working my way towards my dream post by post.
