Just a young lady trapped in an old body.

Background Information

I was born in 1932 in Atlanta, Kansas to Scotch, Irish, and English parents. As a child and throughout my high school years, I read everything I could get my hands on and often got in trouble at school writing snippits that I stuffed in my desk, hoarding those precious gems all through the years. I still have those yellowed pieces of writing. How weird is that?

My favorite writer who inspired me the most was John Sanford, and most currently, indie writers, Gordon Kessler and Hazel Hart. Old radio favorites also thrilled, frightened, and affected the direction of my writing: Lights out, Little Theatre off Old Times Square, Inner Sanctum, The Twilight Zone. As a child, I would sit with my family around the tiny radio with the lights off and share a bowl of popcorn with the family cat.

Most of all, my sister, Winnie, encouraged my writing ventures, and she spent many hours critiquing my work. It took thirteen years before I felt confident enough to publish.

My career as an Art Educator spanned twenty-three years. When I retired, I began to do what I'd always wanted to do,write. My first novel, Out of Control, was a paranormal suspense,  I joined a critique group where I met Hazel Hart, and we combined out short stories and  published two books of dark fiction, Edge of Nowhere and  Dark Side of the Rainbow. From there, we went on to develop a different kind of book review, filming vlogs featuring the character from the novel, which we posted on our blog, Keyhole Conversations.

I am a member of the Kansas Writers Association, the Kansas Authors Club, and the Oklahoma Writers Federation. I have one daughter and live in the midwest.

Birth Place
Atlanta, KS U.S.

I have won awards for my fiction from Kansas Writers Association and Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc.

Additional Information

My current historical novel, Nelly of No Man's Land, is set in 1890 Oklahoma. My recent work-in-progress, Assisted Living, is a mystery where a neglected mother becomes a target for a black market organ ring when she enters a care facility

Keyhole Conversations
Keyhole Conversations started out as a simple idea with my writer friend, Hazel Hart. We wanted something different that viewers could enjoy, so we decided to interview the character of the novel in a vlog instead of the usual author interview. From there, we created a blog to showcase the author, his book, his bio, and we added the video on YouTube, as well as placing the video on the blog site. What started as a simple idea turned into quite an undertaking as my friend and I struggled to cope with the technology of filming, learning to edit and combine all the clips into a coherent short vlog. It has been a fun venture for both of us that should surely stave off any Alzheimer's we might get in old age. Hey! I don't consider seventy-nine as being old. I'm just a young lady trapped in an old body. Remember?
