Manndi Maphies DeBoef works full-time at the UMKC School of Pharmacy at Missouri State University. Her greatest passion is being a mom to her two rambunctious, creative, endearing sons, William, age 10 and Waylan, age 8. Her sons never fail to provide daily entertainment, which inspires many of her writings. She also loves to write about everything from being a single mom and dating after divorce, to miscarriage, the loss of a loved one, and starting over. Her pieces are lovingly filled with inspiration, encouragement and always a touch of humor.
