My name is Kyle (well, Kyle Anne). I am a wife, a mom, a reader, and a writer. I have dual degrees in comparative literature & journalism.
Coffee gets the gears in my life running regular, books keep those gears grinding and wine keeps them oiled and moving.
I’m blessed with two daughters, 13 and 11. They are both active and funny in their own ways. Libby, our older daughter, is a pretty good student who keeps us running between swimming and lacrosse. Our younger daughter, Katy, has Down syndrome and is quite the ham, loving attention and the spotlight. She adores dance and is involved in a great dance group. She also is involved in Special Olympics and cheering her big sister on in everything she does.
I grew up in Colorado, my husband’s from New Jersey, we met in Arizona. We have lived in California, Colorado, and now, Ohio. We have family all over the States, so we travel to visit for most vacations. We love our small Central Ohio town of Delaware and are lucky to call it home.
As a family, we don’t get to spend enough quality time as a unit, so we take advantage of all we can get. We travel well together in cars for long periods of time, and fly off to visit family (usually mine, in Arizona) often. We love to support our high school sports teams, and really love our small town life.
I am so lucky to get to write for a living; my day job is a great gig that allows me to work (mostly) from home. I get to be here when the girls get off the bus, but they also see me as a working mom.
All-in-all, I’d say I’m a lucky woman. Life has its downs and its ups, but I’m a glass half full lady, and I’d say there is more up than down. And that makes my life and my corner of the world seem just a little charmed.
