You can get the girl out of the country, but you can't get the country out of the girl.

Background Information

Having been raised on a farm, I learned the value of hard work. Not only does it bear fruit but it also brings joy, plus the fact that getting your hands in the soil is very theraputic! I have always enjoyed working in my yard and vegetable garden. When the last of my 3 children left for college, I took a real estate course and became a realtor. Being the "people person" that I am. I thoroughly enjoyed the contact with people. After 26 years of real estate and having city life, I returned to the country and ended up in the beautiful mountains of southwestern Virginia as matron of Bethlehem Retreat though I maintain a residence in the NC trial area in order to be near 2 of my children.God has blessed me with 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren and many friends.

Birth Place
Greensboro, NC Guilford
Additional Information

My first book is "Arthur, the Talking Goat" and "Arthur's Friend, Hazel the Hen" is a sequel to it. Both were animals on Bethlehem Retreat Farm in southwestern VA. What would you do if you had a goat that could talk? Arthur is a white Angora goat who lived on a farm owned by Tom. However, Tom is moving to a city that is far away, and he cannot take Arthur to his new home. Tom thinks about what to do and decides to put an ad in the paper to find Arthur a new owner. A few days later, he receives a call from a man named Sam. Sam and his wife Sally come to see Arthur and decide that he will have a good home on their farm. One day when Sam has an apple to feed his new goat, Arthur begins making some sounds. Do you think that it might just be possible for Arthur to say a word? The wonderful, full-page, colored illustrations were done by Daisy's grandson, Cameron L. Paxton. This is a book that all children, especially those who love animals, will greatly enjoy. "Arthur's Friend, Hazel the Hen" Is it possible for a goat and a hen to be friends? Arthur, the talking goat who lives on a farm with his owners Sam and Sally, is back. Sam talks to Arthur every day, but Arthur is lonely and sad because he does not have an animal friend. The chickens have other chickens for friends. The dog and the cat are friends, and the cow and the horse are friends. Even the llamas have each other for friends. One day a fox comes out of the woods and starts killing the chickens until there is only one hen named Hazel left. When the fox chases her, she flies into Arthur's pen for safety. What might happen when a goat and a hen live in the same pen? This book weaves an enchanting tale of friendship that children will find fascinating. The colorful, eye-catching illustrations by Bethany Blankenship are based on original characters created by Cameron L. Paxton. "Arthur's Friend, Hazel the Hen" is a very warm and friendly book for young people. Book reviewer, Wayne S. Walker, with Stories for Children Magazine, gives both books a 5 star rating.
