Don’t tell anyone, but her secret ambition is to star in a Broadway musical, and she often feels tempted to break into song and dance at very odd moments. She attended Southern Illinois University and studied Biology and Computer Science. Now, she lives in Chicago with her family, where she writes and gardens.
