I was born and raised in Fayetteville, Arkansas, in 1957. I have loved reading ever since the alphabet letters in Dick and Jane suddenly became words. I do not have a college degree, but it’s never been difficult to create a laudatory speech or article when I was emotionally attached to the subject, or to dash off a caustic harangue when I was really angry.
In 1978, a dear friend committed suicide. From that loss, a wish began, which grew into an idea in 2002. In April 2010, my husband became insistent that I try my hand at writing the novel that had been rolling around in my brain for eight years. The storyline had become a topic of conversation anytime we made an out-of-town trip. During that summer, I had the experience of typing as fast as I could while the story “wrote itself.” The characters talked to me day and night. I loved the writing, but did wonder sometimes if I was losing my marbles, especially as I rode the emotional wave over the conflicts and heartaches the characters endured.
Broken Road is the title of my first publication. I had never intended to pen a sequel, but the leading characters had other plans, badgering me with so much information that it was either put it into print or go nuts. Full Circle is now finished and available for sale as an eBook on Smashwords or on Lulu.com in paperback or hardback.
Calling myself an author puts me way outside my comfort zone. I don’t have a college degree--not even close--but slowly, I’m becoming more at ease. At this point, I can’t remember what life was like when I wasn’t writing.
