 About Self
I am a "retired early by choice" RN who enjoys writing. I live in Texas with my husband, and three parrots. My daughter and step daughter have blessed us with five grandchildren. I love to write for the Lord, and hope my writing touches the readers in some way. I am active in my church, and am still on my journey as a Christian.
