Where life begins and love never ends . . .
When not teaching, I like to read, lift weights, embroider, and spend time with my grandchildren: Corryn, Ellie, and William. I have one daughter and two sons: Alexa Delaune, Zack McDermott, and Adam McDermott. Alexa is the vice-president of veterinary medicine at the Mississippi Aquarium. Zack is an author who lives in New York City; he wrote Gorilla and the Bird: A Memoir of Madness and a Mother’s Love. Adam lives in Denver and is an airplane mechanic.
