Hey there! I'm a former language arts teacher and current freelance writer/mom to four crazy kids. I have always loved animals, especially horses, dogs, and cats. My parents even got me a horse for Christmas one year, which is just about the best gift anyone could hope for! The animals in my life now are a whacky miniature Goldendoodle, a neurotic mini schnauzer, an ancient kitty cat, and about 20 chickens.
