Interviewed by Julie Link
Where did you grow up and where do you live now? I grew up in Scottville, a small town on the west coast of Michigan. I’m fairly certain there were more cows than people in Scottville, but it’s only fifteen minutes from the beach, so it had some perks. I now live in Elk Rapids, Michigan, an equally small town with access to even more beaches, but much farther north.
Tell us about your family/home life. I’ve been married for seven years to the most amazing, frustrating, and wonderful man. He’s an absolute redneck (said without prejudice) who wears camouflage as much as possible, but he also keeps our house decorated with seasonal kitchen towels. A year and a half ago my aunt moved in with us. She’s sixty-four years old and mentally handicapped. I love her to bits and am so happy to have her with us. I now stay home to help take care of her. She helps me take care of our two cats, Bucket and Midgie. More
