When I was young, my Mom told me I could be anything I wanted. Too bad it took me so long to figure out what that was. I joined the Army right out of high school and spent six years enlisted as an Arabic linguist. The Army kindly sent me to college, where I met my future husband, got commissioned as a second lieutenant and earned a degree in Middle Eastern Studies. I followed that up with another six years as a military intelligence officer before I left the military to start a family. Since leaving the military, I’ve spent time as a Department of Defense contractor, a graduate student, and full time stay at home military spouse and mother to two boys.
During my husband’s last long stint away from the family, my mother, my brother, and I decided to start a book club. After our first attempt at reading and discussing our chosen book, we realized that we would much rather be producers as opposed to consumers of literature and the Litzophreniacs 3 became reality.
I’m currently working on my next book while enjoying being back in the Pacific Northwest.
