I grew up in Tacoma, Wash, I went to college in Oklahome, then life carried me all the way to Texas where I've resided now for over 30 years. I'm married, have 2 grown sons, 12 grandchildren, 4 great-grandchildren. I retired in 2011 from my career and finally had time to launch my journey into the dream I've held for years, writing. I now have 8 books published, all of which have won award. I am looking forward to launching my 9th book soon. I am President of the East Texas Writers Association.
