About Me

I started writing in my 50s but got serious a few years ago. I now have 82 articles in various publications including nine Chicken Soup for the Soul Books. I regularly write for the Lyons Recorder Newspaper, am a member of Colorado Authors' League and Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. I've written for art, children, religious, teacher, travel, Senior, parent and Family Circle magazines. I teach a memoir class.

I grew up in a little town in Texas, attended East Texas State College, majored in Elementary Education with a minor in English, moved to Colorado in 1963, taught, met Bob in 1964, married in 1965, had three sons - Mark, Paul, and John who have given me seven grandchildren from 1 to 12 years including two sets of twins.
