I grew up in Virginia, but married a Texan so I'm in Houston for the long haul! My husband Robbie and I have been married almost five years and have one "child," a dog named (of course) Tex. We're expecting our first human child at the end of April and are waiting to find out if it's a boy or a girl. Robbie is a youth director at Christ EPC in Houston, and is a finalist to compete in season two of American Gladiators (fingers crossed). I recently got my Masters in Fiction and am working on a young adult novel. I love writing, painting, and blogging, and when I'm not pregnant, I do roller derby. We love the adventure that is our life together!
