The one thing I am passionate about...
Working with children and volunteering to improve the quality of life in my community. "If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem". In my experience coaching fastpitch softball and being active in my children?s activities, I have had the opportunity to help and influence the future leaders of our communities.

The last book I read and enjoyed
I read or listen to between 4-5 books per month. I enjoy Suspense, Mystery, and a sophisticated plot. Some of my favorite authors are: Clive Cussler, Robin Cook, Jeffery Deaver, James Paterson, Catherine Colter, Dan Brown, Dean Koonts, Patricia Cromwell, and Douglas Preston. "Frankenstein, the Prodigal Son Returns" by Dean Koonts was one of the books I read recently and enjoyed. It is a fictional novel that places Frankenstein in today's world. The plot makes many references to Mary Shelly's original book. Dean Koonts is a specialist at developing his characters and interweaving them in a sophisticated often supernatural plot.
