I’ve lived on both sides of the tracks. On the “wrong” side I learned valuable life lessons about money not buying happiness. On the “right” side I achieved some lifelong ambitions – education and travel. Like the apostle Paul, I’ve learned to live in both abundance and want. Most importantly I discovered that on both sides of the tracks, Jesus is there.
Still living on the wrong side of the tracks, my good life began at age twenty-one when I became a Christian. Later, after moving to the right side of the tracks, I graduated from the University of Texas Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Literary Studies.
My first book was published by Moody Press and enjoyed three printings - not bad for a first book. Thanks to my supportive hubby, Larry, I am able to write full time.
Blessed with wanderlust, I’ve visited most states in the United States - including Hawaii and Alaska. A fantastic trip to the Virgin Islands resulted in my historical, THE VIRGINS. Most of you know three of the Virgin Islands belong to the U.S. I've also cruised the British Virgin Islands aboard a 43-foot sloop.
Another totally great travel experience was in the United Kingdom where I explored England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. That trip resulted in my book MASQUERADE MARRIAGE. Being of Scots-Irish descent what else could I do but write of Scotland?
