I was born in Northern California and spent most of my growing up years in Los Angeles. My first husband and I moved to Houston, Texas with our two young sons in the early 1970's. I was widowed in 2004 after my first husband's long and courageous battle with lung cancer. I am now remarried and my wonderful husband, Steve, and I live on a little farm in Southeast Texas. I began writing when I was just a little girl. My little sisters were my first critics, snuggling beside me at bedtime while I read my newest work to them. A Wink at Midnight is my first novel.

A beautifully written personal story. I had recently suffered the loss of my beloved father and I don't know if I'll ever really get over the loss. He was a loving affectionate father, grandfather and husband. Reading your story reminds me of the things my mum told me about what she misses most about my dad. And it's not too different from what you've said in your story. Eight months on and my mum still sleeps with the shirt he wore the day he died...where his smell still lingers.I hug her more often as usual as she misses my father's hugs. Thank you for this beautiful story. A must read - to me - for anyone who's suffered the loss of a loved one. BTW I also love your story, "The Lady Nest Door".
