Sunday for church and Monday to the library.   Her love for reading, particularly fiction took her to worlds far beyond the mountains. She has worked as a retail manager, administrative assistant, engraver, tree farm worker, disc jockey, and hair salon manager all of which created active backdrops for her imagination.
