Writing has been my life since I first
picked up a pencil before I entered school. I learned the alphabet and the word AT. After that I went down the alphabet rhyming
words. It was intoxicating!
By the time I left third grade, I was writing stories and knew one thing--I
wanted to be a writer. (I also wanted to be a jockey, before there were women jockeys. I was deep into the Walter Farley "Black
I geared my education to become a writer. In high school I won writing awards and sold my first
short story. During college I began selling my stories and articles. I graduated with a comprehensive degree in Journalism--a
very good foundation for any type of writing.
Now, many books later, some traditionally published, some with
small publishers and some self-published, I still write for my career. (Some of those books won awards.) I have a regular
column in a regional newspaper. I write short articles for Internet clients. And still develop book projects.
What I write reaches all ages. Interesting how, as my own children
grew up, I wrote stories for their different ages and stages. I write both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and historical,
mystery, fantasy and even romance. I also write about the moral, cultural and political issues of the day.
I write from a caring, life-affirming, Christian perspective.
