To Start With...
Born and raised in Michigan, I’ve never strayed far from home. I still live in the same area and own a tiny gal's house with a dog and three cats that allow me to be their roommate. I’ve been married before (didn’t work out so well) and am contentedly single.
My "day job" is an executive secretary. I've been a civil servant for twenty-five years and am looking forward to retirement in six. The plan is to move somewhere warm where I can play golf, hang out on a beach, and write.
All I need is a hut, Wi-Fi, and nine holes!
Besides writing and golf, I love to read (of course!), spending time with family, and I’m a total “techno geek”. Not really into girly-girl stuff like shopping, I would much rather sit under a tree with my laptop.
My Writing Journey
My writing career began in the fourth grade. I chronicled the life of a blade of grass that lived on an athletic field. He bemoaned the weekly torture of mowing and gave a blade’s-eye-view of a football game. (The marching band traumatized him for life.) Don’t remember what grade I got but the teacher and I weren’t exactly on the same page anyway: I burned that bridge after she caught me reading a book during math class.
Wish I still had that story. I’m sure it would be a best seller.
Over the years, I wrote occasionally but never gave it much thought until life’s circumstances found me in a place of new beginnings. God stirred a passion in my heart and I began to wander down the twisty road of becoming a writer.
My current WIP (work in progress) is a novel called Photo Finish. I'm in the editing phase and am looking forward to pitching it to an agent in the future. It’s a story that burns within me and I just can’t get it out of my head: It must be told.
Why Do I Write?
My relationship with God is the most important thing in my life. I’ve been a Christian for a long time, but in the last few years, my spiritual journey has taken off. His kindness never ceases to amaze me and because I’m so grateful, I want to use my talents for him and hopefully touch someone’s heart along the way.
