I developed imaginary friends at an early age These friends and I took trips around the world in the safety of the living room--a room with it's old upright piano, French windows and doors and water stains on the wallpapered ceiling. It overlooked pastureland, a slough with cattails and mud flats, all excellent fodder for a writer-to-be.
I am currently writing my twelfth book. My books, which are currently in print, are available online through Smashwords and numerous other sites. They are all digitally presented, which keeps the price low. The genres of my works vary, but they are written with the depth of literary fiction and the insights of visionary fiction. I paint and create my own cover art.
While following my bliss, I became a painter, thanks to art lessons by Jerry Yarnell on OPB. My art work is available for view on the website I share with my husband, one he created. A life well-lived means being true to one's dreams, regardless of what reality brings. The heart is where true success resides.
