Bio: I grew up in the south on a little red dirt road. I was a little barefoot imp with tangled blonde hair and dirt under my nails, and it was heaven. I climbed trees, caught frogs, snakes, turtles, and tramped through creeks and woods all day. No abandoned building within my vicinity was safe from my exploration. I played in thunderstorms heedless of pelting rain or lightning. I was a little wild girl. I'm grown now, but that little wild girl lives on in my writing and in my heart.
