“I was raised in a family of storytellers. My father was a master raconteur, one brother was a poet, another a musician. I believe life is all about stories, and that is what and how we share with one another.
I have a degree in Acting, and have retired from a 35-year career working on stage, in TV and film, and radio. That career informs and enriches my writing. I’ve raised a family, am now a doting grandmother, and have been blessed to meet and cross paths with some dear, colorful, challenging personalities.
I started writing stories when I was a young girl, wrote my first novel when in high school, and began writing for publication in my forties. I’m sixty-seven years young, and proudly wear the wrinkles and silver hair I’ve earned. I write every morning for a few hours, and sometimes come back to it in the afternoon, but mornings are my most creative time of the day. A native Texan, I live in the small historic town of Lockhart, where the air is redolent with myth and barbecue.“
