I'm 66 and I've earned my stripes.(I love zebras)


Background Information

I was born three months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. I have memories of that difficult war time .  My Dad and uncles went away to war and my Mom went to work.  I even have some ration books. 

I lived near my grandmothers, and they were a big influence on my life.  I had a close knit family of aunts, ucles, and cousins all in the same general area.  This gave me a good steady base in my childhood.

I attended Brigham Young University and graduated with a degree in English.  I loved college . I studied creative writing and was published in the BYU literary magazine. 

I married, taught school, and then raised three children.  When they became school age I worked for a local newspaper, fulfilling my "Lois Lane" fantasy.  I would snoop out human interest stories, interview, photograph them, and then write them up.  I loved it!

 I composed the lyrics and music for a children's song and entered it in  a church competition.  I won an Award of Merit for that song and it was performed on Temple Square in Salt Lake City.

I write books for my grandchildren.  They each get one on their birthday.  I have extended this writing and have written short stories, poems,  anecdotes and songs. I also do my own illustrations and I design tee shirts, too.

I get great enjoyment from this activity .

Additional Information

I have just published a children's chapter book called "Meet the Mooglies". I patterned it after my granchildren who live in the Mojave desert. I also design tee shirts.
