Thank you for visiting my website!

Ohio is my home state.  I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and spent a lot of time with extended family on the weekends in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  I received my English degree from Ohio State University.  This makes me not only an Ohio State Buckeyes fan, but also both a die-hard Steelers and Penguins fan as well.

I have trained as a Stephen Minister and am a spiritual mentor.  I enjoy walking alongside of people who need support and guidance.  Over the years, I have taught Bible Studies and been involved in women’s ministry and children’s ministry.  The Lord is an important part of my life. I don’t know how I’d get through the things that have happened if I didn’t have my faith in Jesus.

My husband and I have been married 40 years.  After a whirlwind courtship, we were married eight months after meeting one another.  Through the years we have learned that true love does travel on a gravel road, as the song goes, but with work and each giving 100 percent to the relationship, it endures.  We have three grown children and four grandchildren.  Today, we live in Lexington, SC with our two furry kids, Lily and Stimpy.

I have been writing since I was 9 years old and enjoy creating characters and making up stories on paper.  I also enjoy writing about what God has shown me in scripture and through my experiences and history.

My hobbies are reading, golf, and cooking.  I love to walk and float on the lake. My favorite thing to do is watch old movies – film noir especially. I love Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable and Cary Grant. My favorite memory is seeing Elvis Presley in concert. What a performer!

Please feel free to contact me.  I welcome hearing from you.
