The recent bad news for me is that the Harlequin line: Heartsong
Presents (HHP) that I write for has been discontinued. No more contracts in that direction. Other authors lose out and the
editor will soon be looking for a new job.
I've been working on a three book series with HHP in mind. With this news, it is difficult to stay motivated to continue
writing. But I will. I try to finish what I start. Who knows where these books might end up.
I am glad I have other venues for my writing...

When the NIH screams about needing more
of our hard-earned money, check where their funding goes. Click below to read my latest Hub column "Where is
the Ebola research money?"
So far two letters to the editor have gone after my Ebola
article, though neither one disputes what I present. The first did not like my source--too conservative, the second also missed
the point that accountability is needed to force NIH to provide $ to studies that save lives.
What is prayer all about? It is more than demands. It is about the focus
of our heart. Click on the link below to read my poem "Not Just Another Day."

About the Author
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.
