I have been writing since childhood and I attended the Columbus Art School, so called in the 50s. I have drawn on countless margins and church programs and painted on windows, canvas and other blank surfaces. I dropped out of art school when my mother became ill and got a job with Ma Bell as a Yellow Pages artist. Thereafter, it was two years in South America as a missionary, then marriage and the birthing and raising of seven children.
My years have always produced some piece of writing, artwork or mischief in the form of humor. If you call scenery, artwork, I have painted my fair share.
To date, my professional credits include, five published books, (the first is co-authored,) three are my own works, and another for which I did the illustrations. My written works are novels.
