I am a wife of 41 years, mother of five grown sons, and grandmother to a boy and girl. Ever since I learned to write, I would jot down my thoughts and impressions. Little snippets of inspiration in the form of poetry, song lyrics, or short essays. About six years ago, I decided to try my hand at writing a full length book. I’ve since written five works of fiction, two non-fiction, and am working on an idea for a children’s book, as well as more fiction manuscripts. Writing a full-length work is much more challenging than I thought, and I have received so much valuable assistance from other writers, especially from the ACFW critique groups. My husband has been supportive of my long hours spent at the keyboard. Thank you, my beloved Johnny! And now I’m under contract with Prism Book Group with a novel set to be released this coming fall! What a journey this is! I thank God and His Son for my life, my loved ones and the spark of creativity inside every person. I believe each person is a unique creation, with their own special voice and place in this amazing universe. Thank you, God!! You amaze me every day!
