"Born in New Orleans, and beginning the trek at six months old of approximately 34 moves in my life. Those moves included living overseas 3 times and traveling to about ten other countries. AND I loved it. It's made it hard to finally settle down, my feet get really itchy. 
     I've "embroidered" the truth since I could talk. Fortunately, I had parents who knew the difference between lies and fanciful. I started writing when I was about ten and have been writing most of my life.

     I married my Navy husband when I was 2 weeks short of 19 years old, and in the following years, had the joy of raising three children.

     While my husband was preparing for ministry, I entered college at age 41 in Toccoa Falls, Ga. I worked primarily in the school's radio station: Toccoa Falls Radio: 90.9. At that time of night, the audience is really listening,I worked all the shifts, but especially enjoyed the late night/early morning times. At that time of night the audience is really listening. I enjoyed late night calls from my listeners. When my husband graduated after two years, we moved to Temple, Texas. I was accepted by the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor and graduated in two years, at age 45 with a BA/Art degree.

     For more about me, read the leaf "Time Was" which will be a work in progress until I no longer can function on this Earth.

   "Enjoy them all, and write if you like."
