About Me

Hello and welcome!

I love words. Mostly written words. I love to write them and read them. A good book is a treasure. I have loved to read from the time I learned to recognize words, and as long as I can remember, I have loved to write.

After I discovered Harriett the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh in my elementary school library, I determined to follow Harriett’s lead and observe the world around me, without spying, of course! That is when I began putting words on paper and creating worlds and characters and events from my imagination.

Soon I was sharing stories with my friends and teachers. I received good grades on writing assignments and later became editor of my high school newspaper. I wanted to be a writer.

God had other plans for me. I taught high school English and science for 30 years first. Then I became a published author. Life is full.

Miss Millie, my 1962 Scotsman Scottie camper

One of my favorite things to do is camp or “glamp” (glamour camping) in my vintage camper. Miss Millie is my happy place where I can go to be alone, write, or watch DVDs. I belong to a ladies’ camping group and we have a wonderful time whenever we’re together.
