I’m married to a modern-day Viking and we have two adorable fur babies. Hobbies include hiding from the hellish Texas summers and lollygagging (also known as dilly-dallying).

P.S. As Michele Freeman, I write about true crime cases for The Crime Wire and the Saint County mystery thriller stories on Medium.
