Introduction I was born in Minnesota, two minutes before my twin sister Laura. My sister and I were preemies and started experiencing life in an incubator. We grew up in a middle class home on Lake Minnetonka. Our mother died when we were only nine years old so we were raised by our father. Laura and I are the youngest of five children. We both went to school for approx. 18+ years. Both Laura and I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and a Masters degree in Counseling and Psychological Services. We've both worked in the mental health field for several years doing a little of everything...The past ten years, I've focused on my passion for writing and am now a published author. I consider myself a very positive person. I'm a total Extrovert and Love Life. Speaking of loving life, I am a grateful lung cancer survivor. I currently live with my best friend who happens to be my identical twin sister. I am helping to raise her two beautiful teenage children, We have two black Lab dogs; Joey and Spooky. My life is full of love and joy.

If you were a pirate, how would you avoid laughing when saying 'poop deck'?

Well I'm not a pirate but I do know a lot about poop. I have 2 black labs (Joey&Spooky) that keep me busy cleaning it up and I'm not laughing. Side Note: Spooky, the younger dog, likes to eat her own poop. We have coined the term: "POOPSICLES"
