My husband Larry and I reside in North Carolina. My two sisters are my best allies and encouragement supporters. They are my most precious friends.
I work as a barber at Floyd's Barber Shop in downtown Mayberry, NC. Best known from the Andy Griffith Show that ran from 1960 through 1968 and the hometown of Andy Griffith.
My hobbies are multiple and I never find myself bored. Life is a story and one that each of us could tell. Regardless whether it is verbal or in type.
I'm a seven year Breast Cancer survivor and give thanks to Jesus for His supporting hand during a difficult period. Thanks as well to my husband for standing beside me through the ordeal. Cancer affects an entire family, not just the victim. For the thousands of cancer survivors out there, you are not alone.
You never know what touches others. This could go either way; good or bad. But through writing you are able to express and hopefully bring a little entertainment to others. It only takes a word to make a person smile and you never know when a word could pick someone up who is down. We don't have to be authors in its truest form of the title, but do what you enjoy and if it's writing, then enjoy when you do it. Thank you Smashwords for giving thousands of people the opportunity to voice their thoughts through self publishing. It's fun and easy to do. The hardest part is self editing. Locating errors can and will be your hardest part in self-publishing your books. Don't let that stop you! If you have stories that you placed high on that top shelf years ago, it is time to get them down and march forward. My words to anyone would be, "Never allow anyone to tell you "that you can't". We may never be known other than to ourselves, but do it for yourself and because of your love for writing.
Thanks to all of you that have downloaded samples or full downloads of my books. I appreciate you without knowing who you are. If you have any encouraging words email to firstname.lastname@example.org. God bless each of you.
