I'm an artist, writer, editor and a seventh-generation Texan who happens to live in Rhode Island, To my utmost surprise, I recently discovered through ancestral research that my 17th-century roots take me back to Newport, RI, where I currently work as Senior Editor of Newport Life Magazine.
I was born in Amarillo, TX, spent my early childhood in Sherman, TX and moved to Lubbock, TX when I was 11. Growing up in the West Texas panhandle, springtime was abundant with sand storms and skies stained red with native soil. Oil pump jacks lined the highways, and since we lived near a open fields, tumbleweeds danced down my street.
My college years where spent back in Sherman, TX at Austin College, a liberal arts institution where I earned by BA in English. After graduation, I worked in Dallas, TX and then moved to Colorado Springs, CO, where I met my husband, a Rhode Island native. After our I dos, we moved to Rhode Island, where we currently live.
