I was born in Kansas, raised in Oklahoma, and transplanted in Texas after a short tour in the U.S. Army. My husband, Mark, children, Brandon and Katy, and now my grandchild, Ryan, keep me active and busy. The focus of my career has been in the electronics and the telecom industries for over thirty years. But mostly, I love to create stories.
My mission is to write stories that show Godly character in action and, in so doing, not only tell of God's grace, but to show His love in action in the lives of my characters.
I enjoy the Medieval Era and have read numerous books and articles, researched artwork, checked out websites, and attended fairs. I am enthralled with the time period, finding that many of my stories tend to be medieval adventures, although I tend to create lands of my own imaginings and with slight changes in culture to suite my taste.
Space travel and future speculation have intrigued me as well, so I enjoy writing Science Fiction and Fantasy when the fancy alights.
Non-Fiction is also part of my repertoire. Several pieces were written for church and friends. And, I have created technical articles, operating procedures, and product brochures for various customers and employers.
When not creating stories in my head, I enjoy camping (yes in tents and pop-up campers), gardening (although I'm not very good really with anything but flowers and vines, but the tomato's did well last year), horseback riding (when I can which is not often), and raising my children and grandchildren. Being helpful and teaching others the few things I have learned engulfs all that I do and is often a source of both joy and pain for me.
I am a member of the American Christian Writers, the American Christian Fiction Writers, North Texas Christian Writers, and Realm Makers. I attended classes at ITT Technical Institute, Texas Christian University, Oklahoma State University, and the University of Texas at Arlington, among others. I attend church, assist with special needs events, and work to improve lives where I can.
Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you around often. God bless and good journey.
