I grew up on a dairy farm, northwest of Towands, Kansas and wrote my first book in the second grade. Many years passed before a journalist suggested I write an article for the local newspaper. That sparked a thirty-year writing career that has provided much joy. Along the way, I also enjoyed a career as a travel agent from which I am now retired.
Five years ago, I enrolled in Bible Study Fellowship and have since graduated. It was through these classes that I added yet another form of writing career--the Christian market. Since, I have been fortunate to write for several Christian magazines, publications, and a Christian novel.
These days I devote all my time to writing and working for my church. If my writing touches one person in a positive way, I am truly grateful.
In 2010, AWOC publishers released my first devotional book, Devoted to Traveling. The book is a chronicle of my travels written with lessons learned.
In 2011, I published two ebooks available on Amazon.com and Smashwords.com.
