W.J. Walker is a retired nurse who lives in Michigan with her husband of 41 years and their yellow lab, Lucy, and tabby cat, Rusty. She likes to cook and go on hikes with her husband. She enjoys taking scenic landscape pictures and matting and framing them, and enjoys making candles. Sage/Citrus is her favorite scent.
She met her husband, Larry, after graduating high school and married him 6 months later. He has been her best friend, confidant, and love of her life all these years. They have two sons who are married and have two grandchildren.
After graduating high school she worked to put her husband through college. After starting their family, she went back to school and earned her Registered Nurse certification.
Over the years, she has worked as an R.N. in emergency departments in Cincinnati, Baltimore, and Michigan. She later returned to school and obtained a Masters of Science in Nursing. Her devotion to healthcare has also carried down to her sons who are both professionals in the health care field.
W.J. has had the privilege of working with many people and patients over the years and loves the diversity those people have brought to her life.
After retiring, she began her writing career. The first novel that she wrote involves the FBI, because she originally wanted to join the FBI when she graduated from high school, but she also wanted to be a nurse. The love and devotion to people and their health won out.
Writing is important to W.J. because she believes stories provide new experiences and bring knowledge and excitement into people’s lives. Additionally those stories can bring the comfort of thinking about family, community, and what’s important in life. She believes that good stories should inspire people to read and enjoy their quiet time. Having a good novel can be relaxing, reduce stress, and be just down right fun.
W.J. is currently working on her second novel.
