Hello and Welcome to My Website!
Just a few words of introduction:
I inherited my love of writing and history from my father. After we watched
historical movies together, we investigated the people and events to see
what they really looked like and what really happened to them. As a child, I read and wrote poetry and stories. My interest in writing waned during the years of marriage and children until a university job enabled me to write for school publications. The next thing I knew, I had written five novels with time periods ranging from 1812 to current day. Researching one of these about a World War II military nurse inspired me to tell the world about these women in a nonfiction format. This became my first published book, and the one that became a play in December 2008. I am easily swept up and totally immersed into other eras. I want to write novels inspired by folk songs and fairy tales. My novel, Lily's War, was inspired by "The Lily of the West," which I've loved for years.
Please come back.
