I live in Eastview Kentucky, with my husband and chocolate lab.
I was born and raised in a small town in Grayson County, Kentucky. It is about an hour and a half, southwest of Louisville. I have one younger brother, also named Tim.
I have three children, Ryan, Kyle, and Amy, and three grandchildren, Kyler, Kylee, and Kyndle.
After having my third child I decided to go to college and become a teacher. I graduated from Western Kentucky University (WKU – go Big Red!) with a Bachelors in Special Education and a Masters in Counseling. I have taught everything from kindergarten to high school and even a year of English at the Elizabethtown Community College.
I research three passions that greatly move me.
- Insane Asylums – Now and Then.
- Women’s Rights – Suffragettes/Suffragists.
- Poetry – The Power of Pen and Paper.
My first novel “Asylum” will appear on bookstore shelves within the year.
I hope you enjoy reading some of my poetry, some of which appears in Asylum, while many more will be published here for the very first time. Writing Asylum has been an arduously wonderful adventure and there’s more to come and certainly more to tell about it. As I travel, think and journal, I will share along the way; I hope you’ll join me. Thank you for taking this journey with me!
