Born (Charlotte) Jean in the suburbs of St. Louis,  I grew up in St. Charles, MO and graduated from FHHS.  Attended Mizzou and Lincoln Tech. I have worked as a bartender, a paralegal, a FF/EMT, and a pharmacy tech … and I am now endeavoring to begin a new career as a writer.

I married young (18 years old) and my first husband joined the Navy so we moved a lot. I have been fortunate enough to live in 9 different states, including Hawaii; and have explored all the others  except Alaska (which I still hope to do someday).  My horizons were indeed widened.

Now remarried to Wayne Boyd, the most wonderful man I have ever known. I am blessed with 4 children. Although I have lived in Texas the past 15 years, my heart and my memories remain in Missouri.
