A Letter From the Author
Hi there. Welcome to my website. I'm so glad you dropped in.
For those of you who don't know me, I'm a fourth generation Texan and I attended Stephen F. Austin University where I majored in Business Administration, but took creative writing classes on the side because that's where my heart led me.
I have always loved reading and if it's true God doesn't subtract the hours you spend reading from your life span, then I should pass the century mark with flying colors. I first tried my hand at writing when I was eleven, but the sun was shining and I had a new bike so that effort was doomed to failure.
I didn't try writing again until I was in my sixties. People ask me why I took it up then and my answer is simple, because my husband retired. If you don't understand, just wait, you will.
My first novel, The Secrets on Forest Bend, won several awards. After that, I was hooked.
I've been blessed with two great kids and four grandkids. My late husband and I loved to travel and we saw much of the world. Kenya, New Zealand, and the Galapagos Islands are a few of my favorite places. After he passed, I thought my traveling days were over, yet I've since been to Argentina, Brazil, and Venezuela.
I live in Spring, Texas where I belong to the Northwest Houston chapter of RWA, Kiss of Death RWA, West Houston RWA, and have volunteered at a local hospital for the last thirty years.
In addition to traveling, I love to read, snorkel, and take long walks with my rescue dog, Maggie. I also enjoy speaking to book clubs and writers groups.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you in the bookstore.
