I have always dreamed of being a writer. As a child, when the family went on trips, I would catch glimpses of the people in their yards or on their porches and wonder: "What if…" and create stories about these strangers. As an adult I put my dreams on hold until 1990 when I discovered the River City Romance Writers Chapter. Although writing is my first love, I sing in the church choir, direct the children’s choir, am an active member of the Bartlett Historical Society, am secretary of the bowling league in which I bowl, am a Red belt in Taekwondo, and work two days a week doing the bookkeeping for a photography studio. People ask me when I find time to write. My answer is: "It’s my first love, there is always time to write."
