She works from home with her husband. They home-school their 11-year-old because they didn't have enough to do already.

    Somehow in the craziness of her life, she manages to touch hearts and tickle funny bones from coast to coast. She'll make you laugh, help you find balance and purpose, show you how to see beyond your obstacles, and encourage you to stand up and stick out in a crowded market, because nobody notices normal.
