I am new to blogging. This is my very first entry. My name is Lisa A. Nofzinger and I live in a suburb of Mpls-St. Paul, MN. I am a published writer; my articles have been published in magazines called The Crucible and Positively New Mexico. I plan to write more articles in 2012, as well as work on a novel. I work a day job as a contract telephone operator at 3M Company in Maplewood, MN.
