About Me

I first read the book Mrs. Mike, by Benedict and Nancy Freedman, when I was a teenager - maybe thirteen or fourteen.  I immediately fell in love with the characters, and I wanted nothing more than to move to the wild Northwest Territories and be Mrs. Mike.  It is a love story and a life story.  I still love it today and could probably directly quote lines from the book if you asked me to.  Now, all these years later, I am Mrs. Mike.  But while Katherine Mary and her Mike moved west, I and my Mike have moved east.  Far east.  To Japan.  I am Mrs. Mike.  That means, of course, that my husband is Mr. Mike.  We have two boys.  In keeping with our northwest theme, they are Bear and Beaver.  This is my story.
