I believe in the common man and woman and look to them for our common future. I am a philosopher and an author. I am also a mother and grandmother. I spent twenty years in the fields of print and electronic media. That being said, my story is far from simple. I have held at least 15 different jobs and lived in too many places to count. In the mid 80s I traveled to Hamburg and Geneva to collect video footage in pursuit of the now defunct Super Conducting Super Collider. In 2002 I was off to Okinawa, Japan, in pursuit of radon gas on military bases. I have worked in both the public and private sectors and have come to respect all who labor to make our world work.
I was born in the Illinois heartland when its wheels were oiled by factories, farmers and coal miners. In my middle years I moved to Colorado--a long-cherished dream from my childhood. I now live in Indiana near my family, children and grandchildren. I began writing seriously in 1988 and have never stopped. I have completed several novels, short stories and poems. Recently, at a colleagues suggestion, I set my mind to ebook publishing through Smashwords distributors. I look forward to the next chapter of my life's journey!
