I live in Whittier, NC with my husband Kent and daughter Katie. I'm a writer, a writing tutor and a substitute teacher. We lived in the Poconos from (phone number hidden), while Kent was renovating our condo and working as a seasonal for the Delaware Water Gap NRA. Then he took a job at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and we lived in Park housing with the elk for 4 years before buying a cabin in 2013 which we are now updating (maybe we'll rent IT out someday). I like writing, mountain biking, trail running, kayaking and motorcycling - all of which abound in the Poconos and the Smokies.
