I have a life story that probably could be made into a book but since I value my privacy I'm not going to write it. However, as I was living my own unique life story I began to get interested in the stories of others, and that's part of what led me to journalism. In a past life I was a stay-at-home mom caring for my former spouse and our three children. Then I became a single parent and did that for 14 years while earning a BA from CSU Fullerton and a Multiple Subject teaching credential from CSULA. My oldest daughter is in grad school studying Library Science. My second daughter is a college grad and is a manager for Target, Inc. My youngest, my son, is a 2nd year student at a local community college. He also plays a mean guitar in a band and writes concert reviews occasionally for a local blog.
