Besides being married to a lawyer, we also have two children. My primary job is taking care of them. We have a busy life like most families. Evenings and weekends are spent running kids to activities, making dinner and finishing homework. During the day, I run lots of errands, do my author thing, and try to avoid housework - lol!
Our daughter is an active teen with many friends, hobbies and activities. Softball and singing are her main passions. She has a keen sense of empathy and a slick sense of humor which makes her an extraordinary writer.
Our son is a hilarious 7th grader. Elected to student government and loved by his teachers, he is an all-around amiable guy.
But keeping it real, we all have strong personalities and our house is often loud and very active.
Before I was a wife of an attorney, I was an active duty US Army sergeant. After going to school for Russian, I served as an Electronic Intelligence specialist. I retired from the Reserves in 2011.
I opened a retail wine and beer shop in my hometown. Loved running that business for ten years until I sold it in 2011. My staff and the customers I miss the most.
Now, I'm a full-time mom raising our two teens. But I like to keep current and productive, As an author, I created an adult coloring book for veterans in 2016, So Lawyer's Wife is the first book where I am an actual writer. I am also active as a mentor to small business owners in my community.
Lenden has been practicing law for 33 years. He's so good! I have clients reveal themselves to me all the time when I introduce myself. They say the same thing - he's nice and kind, he's smart and he really listens. For all the lawyer jokes, my guy is a beloved member of the community.
He is also an author and has published two books.
Besides being a writer and author, I love:
