About the Author

A retired grandmother of seven, I was an only child and an avid reader. At a tender age I printed a neighborhood newspaper on a mimeograph (remember those?), and had a 'lending library' complete with cards stamped with the date the book was checked out. My hero was Hopalong Cassidy, and I wrote an impassioned letter to him volunteering to be on his show to 'entertain the children.' Fortunately, my mother saved it rather than mailing it! As a freshman in high school, I had to prepare an autobiography, which understandably was a bit brief at that age. In my senior year I was the editor of the school newspaper, but any 'serious' writing was put on the back burner when I married at the age of 19 and had two wonderful children shortly thereafter.

Unfortunately, our lives were a product of the '60's, 'finding ourselves,' and my husband and I divorced after 7 years of marriage. After wandering in our personal deserts for 17 years, God brought us back together, and we remarried in 1988.

I have finally returned to my early love - writing. I enjoy plots with unexpected twists, mixing genres and taking the reader on a journey. I have always been fascinated with time travel, and I look forward to Heaven when I will be able to insert the DVD and scan to any time in history to see it 'live.'
