Born an Air Force brat, I traveled from California and Texas to Maine and Florida, from Guam to Morocco. My husband Robert and I (married 2-18-63 and he died 3-31-15)share 3 living children, 8 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. My family and life experiences find their ways into my writing. I studied and honed my own writing skills over the years; as I taught, I learned. I MUST write; words and stories awaken me in the night. I have 14 books published, and several won awards. I head a small traditional publishing company, 4RV Publishing.
