About Alicia



My husband and I enjoy a simple life in the boonies of Brown County, Indiana. Nature has always been my happy place and my muse. Our home on Sweetwater Lake is a perfect spot to enjoy the seasonal gifts offered by nature.

We have four grown children, a five-year-old grandson and a 16 -year-old dog named Grace. I taught middle school literature and language arts for more than 25 years. The lessons I learned from my children, my students, and the stories and poetry we read together are forever written on my heart.
