Ever suck a cow? Ride a Pig? Tear the seat out of your pants slidind down the barn roof? I did! Read about it in SHARECROPER'S DAUGHTER

Background Information

I had always wanted to write stories, but had no idea how to start.

My first writing experience what due to an apendectomy surgery which kept me out of school the first six weeks of my senior year. My counselor put me in journalism "because it would be easy to catch up."

I wrote a few feature article for our school paper and, unbeknown to me, my teacher entered two of them in the Arkansas Highschool Feature Writers competition with one of the state papers. I won!

On Class Day, our homeroom teacher and English instructor, gave each of us a personal letter. Mine said, among other things, "If you ever correct your spelling and grammer, you could become a writer."

Years, jobs, children and grandchildren later, a friend ask me to write an article for the paper on a lady who was turning 100. I did and it was printed, 

I did a few more article for the paper, then through a mutual friend, I met Alice Champers, who wanted to start a paper about the Ozark region.

She and I did the first edition in her sewing room. It caught on and we moved into an office. That was six years ago. During that time, I wrote a variety of articles, many of them about things that happened during my growing-up years in a sharecropper family.

With the encouragement of Alice and my husband, I began putting these together into a book, entitled Sharecropper's Daughter, which will hit the book stores on March 31, 2009

In the intrim, I self published a collection of my stories from Life In The Ozarks, called "Small towns in the Ozarks.

I am beginnin a second voulme of "Small Towns", and a sequel to Sharecropper's Daughter, which I am now calling "On My Way to the Nursing Home" which will feature life as a mother and grandmother of a bunch of precotious kid.

Birth Place
Marianna, AR USA

Nothing since high school, but I am on my way to big things.
