I’ve been writing for twenty-five years. I started in the late 1970s writing because I wanted to see if I could put a whole story down on paper. That book is still in the drawer and will never see the light of day. But I was able to finish a book which was my goal. I decided after that to get some help and joined a writer’s round table where I met once a week with some writers and went over each other’s work. I sold her first book in the early 1980s and have been selling ever since.
I love to tell a story. Ever since I was a little girl, I made up stories while playing with my dolls. On long trips with my family I would weave a story about the surrounding countryside. From those early beginnings grew a love of entertaining people with a story.
When I went away to college, I met my husband, Mike, who I’ve been married to for over thirty-five years. He is my support and my best friend. I’ve always felt I was the luckiest woman the day I bump into him on campus.
When we married, we moved to Oklahoma where I finished my degree in Special Education and began teaching. I still teach today and love working with students with special needs. They help me remember what is important in life. I also participates in Special Olympics as a coach with my students.
Upon discovering the burgeoning inspirational fiction market, I’ve enjoyed weaving an extra element into my books--faith. I now specialize in telling tales centered on Christian principles, showing my readers through a wealth of warmhearted everyday characters how important God can be in sustaining us when life gets rough.
