Natalie grew up moving - a lot - all over Southern California and St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, but spent her teens and early 20's near Denver. Thirteen years ago, she settled in the Seattle area. Natalie's days are spent working full time and enjoying her two children, a boy and a girl, for whom wrestling on the stairs is a serious sport. At night, when the house is quiet, she writes. Now that she's checked off "Become a published author" from her bucket list, Natalie has plans to swim with dolphins and learn to sing - even though she's hopelessly tone deaf.
