I grew up in Winnipeg, Canada, the place where hell froze over. I was sent to Chicago at 15 to live at the Orthogenic School for 7 years. Afterwards, I lived in California, Illinois, Indiana, Utah, Colorado and Wyoming, where I got a BS degree in Criminal Justice.
I've lived in Colorado for 21 years and I can see Pikes Peak and most of the Front Range from my bedroom window.
Right now, I live on 5 acres with 7 other people, 4 horses, 3 goats, some chickens and ducks, 4 dogs and 19 cats. Never a dull moment, that's for sure.
Right now, I am learning the fine art of essay writing, or, as it's called these days, creative nonfiction. Since I love to give my opinion at every opportunity, this is the perfect genre for me.
Oh, and I have 7 brothers and 4 sisters, including adopted, half and whole siblings. I've never even met some of them, and some aren't speaking to me for some reason I have either never known or have forgotten many years ago.
