Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, I've been writing one thing or another since childhood. I still have diaries from my school days, one of which inspired I.O.U. SEX, my first book co-written with Sandra Allen.
Besides Dallas, I've lived in Irving and Beaumont, Texas; Miami, Florida; and now Washington State. I love to travel and keep journals (written and photographic) of each trip. Most exciting and memorable place I've been? I walked from Leon to Santiago de Compostela, Spain, with my daughter-in-law and her mother. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience I'll treasure always.
When not writing, I like to make quilts, sew, garden, take photos, lunch with friends, and (like Granny in BLUEBONNETS FOR ELLY) spend as much time as possible with my granddaughter.
