“For the first nine years of my life my family lived in a log cabin and I learned how to ride a horse before I learned how to ride a bike. I once believed the show “Little House on the Prairie” to be relevant, but soon learned when I started going to school, that I was indeed the odd one out. When our family did move away from the cabin, we moved to an even more rural town and to yet another farm. I am the youngest of three sisters and the other half of a twin set. I have always been inspired by the farm where I grew up and all of our parent’s animals that lived there with us. The personality that our pets and livestock had been so varied and entertaining, it was hard not to write about them.”
