But a professional bio doesn’t tell you much about me the person.
So more about Me…
Although another year has passed, in my mind, I’m not a day over 35. However, I’m old enough to remember The Beatles sensation. And every time I pass a mirror my mother reminds me of my age.
As the oldest of six, I grew up in a small SC town located near the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. So if you find some of my stories peppered with down-home Southern flavor you’ll understand why. One of my sisters is a writer and has a much better knack for the Southern slang that I do. I laugh at her way with words all the time, yet secretly I envy it a bit.
Last year I succeeded in publishing another book! And, drum roll, please…
I’ve now published 3 children’s books and a daily Journal. Yay! Not burning up the best seller pages yet but who knows.
Between their inspiration and my deep southern roots, the stories pour out faster than I can write the nouns and verbs in the right order.
The problem is how to write the stories true, and put my heart on the line.
I love Diet Coke and peanut M&Ms, tight jeans, Justin boots, Tex-Mex, and country music. Although no one invites me to sing since I can’t carry a tune in a bucket, it’s best I stick to telling stories.
And I enjoy the snow, but not cold weather. The heat in Texas is wonderful.
Writing is part of my second act and I’m grateful for technology and programs like Grammarly and Scrivener that make reaching for my dream possible. What an amazing time to be a writer.
I use writing prompts, for fun and to keep my skills sharpened. I enjoy writing short stories, mysteries, fantasy, literary and flash fiction, romance, and the occasional comedy. And I love to read everything!
So send me your best, I’d love to read your stories, tips, and thoughts.
