I am an adventurous sort, always into something... I was the kid you saw in the field sitting alone with a book for company. I read to my brothers and sisters at night and later to my children. I raised eight children and that is a story in itself! I am a Texas Lady, born and bred and I love this State, but I love the North Georgia Mountains and Colorado. I love everywhere I have traveled because I see beauty in all things. The true love(s) of my life are my family and my children... but my passion is the written word, and I have honed my craft over a lifetime.
