I was born in the South, raised in town and at the beach. I have sand in my shoes, sunlight in my eyes, and the wind behind my back. My friends accuse me of writing "disaster lit for kids," because my two books are about a hurricane and a tsunami. Natural disasters, however, are mega-dramas and I like to coach beauty out of the shadows. As Kitchey-Gee sez, "you gotta sing grief, not cry it."
I've traveled across the United States, to Mexico, Ireland, England, and Bosnia-Hercovinia; I served at Lourdes in France. I've acted in Little Theatre plays, worked as a Registered Nurse, raised herbs, kittens, puppies, and children, played tennis, and practiced my faith. I've a heart full of gratitude for the life I have and wish only to share my writing with others for the sake of joy!
