Deskjet was born in Louisiana where she lived for her first 18 years. After that she lived in several states, some of which were Georgia, Texas, Michigan, Maine, Nebraska, Ohio, South Caroline, Iowa, and now Missouri. Traveling from state to state has given her a broader view of life and it's the small town atmosphere she loves the most.
She attended college in Georgia for a short time, learning chemistry and had hoped to be a chemical engineer. In Michigan she worked in a chemical laboratory but once getting pregnant, dropped all her aspiration to be a chemist for the wonderful career of being a mom. Never regretting that decision, she now is the proud mother of two brilliant Nanowrimo writers--Towim and Meeliah.
Family life was made difficult with the break-up of her marriage--depression set in for several years. Her girls had to endure a lot of sorrow but she believes it gave them the strength to become such lovely ladies. They have been the joy of Deskjet's life and a source of great encouragement. No mom could be prouder.
Towim and Meeliah took interest in Nano writing and their enthusiasm rubbed off onto Deskjet. Spurred on by this glorious idea of writtin a novel, Deskjet embarked on writing her first novel. Within three weeks the novel Emerald Class was written. What a sense of accomplishment adding fun and joy to her life. At the end of this month, November 2012, she will be able to hold her head high and say--I wrote a second novel. WOW!
Deskjet says: I love you girls!
