Born and raised in Houston, Texas, I moved to North East Texas later retiring early from the Texas public school system. A published poet and songwriter, my passion grew to writing short stories and novels. Countless workshops, writing conferences, and writing organizations help me continue learning the craft of writing. I have written The Running Forward Series; a powerful faith and family saga consisting of three books. “SIN, SECRETS AND SALVATION” won 1st Place in Religious Fiction for 2013 by The Texas Association of Authors. Book two, “RIVER TOWN” also won 1st Place in Religious Fiction for 2014 by TAA. Book three, “HIDDEN CREEK” won 1st Place in Religious Fiction for 2015, also by The Texas Association of Authors. I wrote my first biography, “LILLIE, A MOTHERLESS CHILD” and it won 1st Place in Biography for 2016 by The Texas Association of Authors. I give God the glory for my writing and awards.

Married with two married sons, three grandchildren, and two Yorkie dogs, I am also a caregiver and mentor. When I am not writing, I enjoy reading, speaking engagements, book signings, church activities, plants, and quilting. I am also a Lifetime member of Worldwide Who’s Who.
