  • She has a 26-year-old daughter and a 9-year-old son.  Her children are her favorite humans on the planet.  She thinks they both hung the moon.
  • She has many hobbies. Traveling is by far her favorite.
  • She collects mermaids, not real ones, unfortunately. 
  • The beach is her favorite place in the whole world, any of them. She loves them all.
