Call me Bird.
Thank you for checking out my website. I started Everyone Has A Story almost nine years ago right before my marriage of 20+ years fell completely apart. It was some hellish couple of years, but surprisingly, I managed to live to talk about it. Actually, thanks to Ambien, vodka, and a hazy month of Benadryl martini’s, I pretty much talked/blogged my way through every sordid moment of it. Embarrassing for me, but some great entertainment for everyone else.
I’m now a single, 50-something woman, living in Austin, Texas with my son, William. Besides my writing career, I am presently a branch manager for a staffing agency.
My daughter, Rebekkah, married and moved to China, where she has two children now – Ian and Yili – and is a teacher. William is dealing with a chronic illness, but works for a pet care place and attends rock hound events. Caitlyn got divorced, but is presently engaged to get married again, and is an IT person living in Montana.
Life went on. It feels good to sometimes look over your shoulder and see just how far you’ve come, and how different life feels these days.
