A "Glorified paper shuffler"!
I was born and raised in rural Central Utah. I graduated from LDS Business College, Salt Lake City, Utah; thereafter I worked as a secretary and also a paralegal secretary for many years, and am an experienced business writer. I’ve traveled the country, and lived in the western United States all my life.
I enjoy writing, and have written poems, prose, funny Xmas newsletters, and short humorous stories (Erma Bombeck style).
1 - “Homer the Helicopter Grand Canyon Adventures” is my first book. A shorter version was selected as a finalist in Shamrock Publishing Co.’s 1997 children’s fiction contest.
2 - My humorous short story“One Wife’s Viewpoint” was published in the April 1994 issue of International Cessna 180-185’s Aircraft Newsletter.
3 - Homer the Helicopter Grand Canyon Adventures eBook was judged the 2007 winner in the ebook category of the Indie Excellence Awards by a panel of publishing experts in editing, marketing, publicity and design. The award is sponsored by Smarketing, LLC.
Homer eBook and printed book are duplicates of each other.
4 – I was invited by Experimental Aircraft Association to be one of their featured authors in “Authors’ Area” at the 2008 Airventure Convention, Oshkosh, WI, which convention I did attend.
My other interests include genealogy and playing the piano.
Presently, I live in Brighton, Colorado, with hubby, Charlie, a private pilot—(I myself a previous pinch-hitter pilot), where we fly his vintage Cessna 180 aircraft. My inspiration for writing Homer’s story came from my husband’s in-flight encounter when a bald eagle challenged Charlie’s small aircraft’s maneuvers.
