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 children, 8 grandchildren, and 5 great grandchildren. My family and life experiences find their ways into photos and words. I kept studying and honing my own writing skills over the years; even as I taught, I learned. I MUST write; words demanding to be released awaken me in the night. I have 8 books published and more to come. In my spare time, I head a small traditional publishing company, 4RV Publishing, which has won awards, as have some of my novels.
