I am originally from Ohio and currently live in Heidelberg, Germany with my wonderful husband Tim (a medic in the U.S. Army) and our two dogs Gir (a Pembroke Welsh Corgi) and Apollo (a Miniature Pinscher). I also keep a fitness blog on my website Investing in Fitness and have written guest posts for several other blogs. In addition to blogging, I write fiction and poetry and I have work published or forthcoming in Two-Thirds North, Five Stop Story, Psychic Meatloaf, The Montreal Review, and elsewhere. My story “If I Should Die” was the grand prize winner in Evolved Publishing‘s first semi-annual short story contest and is featured as the first story in the anthology Evolution Vol. 1. You can access more of my work and keep updated about upcoming publications on my Facebook author page.
