Living and gardening in NW Ohio with my husband, ten cats, and eight chickens, I was bitten by the gardening bug in 2005. It soon became my passion. Writing was next (2007) and the two joined forces. Now I write for a local newspaper, two regional gardening magazines, and am the book review editor for Horticulture magazine. My blog is Our Little Acre at http://www.ourlittleacre.com.
