I am a Mother of four and very young grandma of five! I grew up in rural northern Illinois but spent most of my adult years in Tucson when my husband wasn't being transferred around the world with the Air Force.
People are what I love. I find myself observing people all the time, wondering what their stories are and how they have dealt with their lives.
I worked in management for many years and found that humility is very important. If you can't roll up your sleeves and work just as hard as your staff, then it is harder to gain their respect. It is the staff who builds a company.
My grandmother was an author in the 40's , writing children's stories. Her stories were in our nations grade schools before the Sally, Dick, and Jane series.
I grew up with a grandmother always expanding her mind, the love of literature and having one favorite item in my possession: my library card!
I just wrote my first novel and am proud to have it published
If you are reading this, I thank you for taking the time and I hope you enjoy what I write!
