Okay, before I say a word about my bio, let me state that my new line of children's stories, Issues, should be read by either a mother or father and child. The reason is there are lesson about life in them that if the child reads it and understands it, can help them along the way. At least that is my goal. Each issue concerns a life problem that we often meet along our journey. Children do not always understand these days what they should do, or how they should act about some things. Sitting down with your child or grandchild can be a fulfilling time. When Mom and Dad both work all the time, it's hard to relate the problems kids have. I hope these small stories help you to be able to talk to your children about things that confuse and scare them.

Now,I hate doing a bio. What can a person say about themselves that will really interest a reader. Writers are usually rather sedate people with large amounts of imagination, determination and gall. You wouldn't be interested in my education, it was a self learned process, often by the seat of my pants and making mistakes along life's way.

I've been married three times, the first lasted about three months, I was still wet behind the ears so to speak, but learned fast. The second lasted thirteen years and produced two lovely daughters, the third was to my true love, and lasted twenty-four years. Of all my husbands, the last one influenced my writing and gave me the encouragement I needed to be the writer I am today.

A writer writes a lot from personal inspiration, and lessons learned. Unknowingly we use life experiences to develop our imagination. I believe a true writer is spurred onward to write by what has been referred to as voices in our head. Those voices are stories waiting to be told. The stories come naturally to a true writer, not forced but from the movies in our heads that encourage us to put to pen what they want to say. Hopefully they inspire the readers, encourage them and bless them.

With that said, my newest release coming June 30, is Comes a Hero, a vastly researched story, that was hard to write there were so much confusion during this period and in this setting as you will see. So I added even more by bringing 30 widows to a Texas fort, sent by Washington's blessings, to recover their dead heroes. In a time in Texas when confusion ran like water in a river bed.Hope you enjoy it. July will bring All My Yesterdays, a contemporary about a second chance at love.

July will be our big sale month here at Smashwords, take advantage of the reduced prices.

Review by: Publishing by Rebecca J. Vickery on March 21, 2010 :
My Grands Loved it!
I read Lie on a Yardstick to my grandchildren. They loved Julie, the main character, and sympathized with her starting a new school and worrying about making friends. The descriptions of her struggle of whether or not to like her new teacher held their interest. They liked finding out the secret behind the yardstick. The story also sparked some interesting questions. Take a minute and read this to (or with) your kids or grandkids. I know they will enjoy it as much as mine did.
