I retired from the secular workplace in June, 2005 to pursue my life-long dream of writing. I am married to my wonderful husband of 39 years, Jim, the love of my life. I am a mother of two wonderful children, Angela and Benjamin, who are both grown and have kids of their own, making me a grandmother of seven--four grandsons and three grand daughters. As close to my heart as writing, my second love is landscape gardening; so if I am not at my computer, I will be wandering my home-made paths among the shrubs and flowers, trimming roses, or taking awesome photographs in my own little corner of God's beautiful creation! One of my current projects is an outdoor garden room where I look forward to finding ample inspiration for my writing projects. With sunlight dancing on the leaves above, songs of birds in the background and sweet honeysuckle wafting on the warm breeze...how can I NOT write?
