I live in the rolling hills of Norteast Texas with my
favorite alpha-male, my husband of 44 years. We have two children, five
grandchildren, and two great granddaughters.
After retiring from my secular profession as a photographic
and digital artist, I decided to start a second career. This time, my focus was
not on making a living, but on following a dream. Always a voracious reader, I
decided to try writing the type of stories I loved to read. With the attitude
that "It's Never Too Late,” I made a five year plan to become published.
Five years later, to the month, I realized my goal.
I love to write the character driven stories that speak to
the "Princess" in my heart and the "Warrior" in my soul.
When I’m having trouble with one of those stubborn alpha
males or reluctant heroines, I like to take a break from my writing and play
with my fabric. I hate too much pre-plotting in writing and too much structure
in sewing. I love to let the fabric’s mood, feel, color, smell, and the play of
light determine what I’ll make that day.

“I cheered for the
couple and I cried for them. Such emotion is truly only wrought from a wizard
with words and storytelling.”Review posted at Mindy’s Minding Spot Blog
“This is a book that
will remain on my shelf to be re-read!” Review posted at My Guilty Pleasures Blog
“I found myself
laughing, angry at times and even crying because the book is that good. I was
so engrossed in the story that I found myself thinking and wondering what was
going to happen next when I was not reading it.” Review posted at My Not So Hurried Life Blog.
