Background Information

Hello, loyal readers--Welcome to AuthorsDen.  I hope you will mark this stie as one of your favorites and visit often. The website isn't just about me. It is full of information regarding an array of authors writing in all genres.  I appreciate all the love and support you have shown me throughout the years.

After 34 years, I retired from the United States government. My husband, Lamont, and I moved from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to central Florida.  We live in a retirement community called The Villages, Florida.  We have two beautiful daughters, Nicole who lives in Washington, D.C. and Natalie who lives in Chicago, Illinois with her husband.

My passion is writing.  When I was a young girl I was told to find another career because an authors didn't make much money.  I have to say, my teacher and parents were right--authors write because they like it and every now and then one becomes famous. 

I had a wonderful, successful career working for the United States government until I retired.  Despite my success I knew something was missing.  As part of my job, I traveled all over the United States. To occupy the empty hours when I was away from my family, I wrote novels. I submitted them to publishers and received nothing, but rejection letters but it didn't discourage me.

Finally, at the age of 60, my first book was published in January 2006--Sunday Golf. Don't let anyone discourage your dreams.

Birth Place
Connellsville, PA USA
Accomplishments

I belong to the Lady Lake Florida Writers Association writing group that encourages writers through critiquing, workshops, lectures, book fairs, and conferences. I also belong to several writing groups in The Villages, Florida and sponsor The Write Corner for writers. I am an Eastern Star, enjoy bowling, reading, golfing, and socializing with friends.

Additional Information

My first book was released in January 2006, Sunday Golf. My second book,Intuition (co-author, Deborah Seibert, was released in May 2006. In November 2006, After Bowling was released. In May 2007, Casserole Parade was released and I'm currently working with a major movie studio as to making it into a big screen movie. The sequel to Casserole Parade was released January 2008. With the success of Sunday Golf, I have become a guest speaker at clubs, organizations, and the public library. I also conduct workshops. I love to motive, help, and share information. I started a small writing group--The Write Corner. The main focus of the forum is sharing information as well as critiquing each others work. Through the encouragement and help of the group, all the members are published. I believe in giving back to the community. When someone buys one of my works, they help someone in need. With every book I sell I donate proceeds to the Florida Wildwood Food Pantry as well as other charitable organization that help others.
