Trudy was a story teller from the time her mother started reading to her as a child. She would memorize every book as she listened with wide eyes and then she would retell the stories to entertain her two older brothers. She loved books and when she learned to read she learned to love them even more. Books could transport her anywhere her imagination could take her.
She had an English teacher who encouraged her to pursue her writing talents and promised it would help her sort out life's challenges. She continued writing and the love for expressing herself bloomed magically.
When she began to have children of her own she decided it was time to start writing again. She wrote a Children's Sequel about fairies that will come out in print in 2014 and just finished the sequel to Traffickers that came out in May 2014.
She has written poetry since the 70's and was presented the Editor Choice Award in 2006 for poetry.
Trudy is happily married to her best friend and they have two children and twelve grandchildren. She tries to follow her motto, "Life is a gift, really live it, don't sit on the side lines, enjoy it wisely."

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am the owner of Busy Bees Preschool and I spend a portion of each day taking care of children. I truly believe that children are the future and hope that we make a difference in each child that comes to our school. There is nothing so precious as the laughter of a child and the pure joy they get out of the simple things in life. Children just want someone to listen to them and care about what they are doing. There are hundreds of thousands of children who only get commanded interaction from adults. Like, "clean your room", "pick up your mess", "brush your teeth", and that is usually less than three minutes a day. How sad is that! Children need the undivided attention of the adults in their world; at least thirty minutes each day and that is not to much to ask. Their needs are quite simple, they need to know that we love them, that we are pleased with them and grateful that they are in our lives. There are to many children who feel unloved, unwanted and an inconvenience to their parents. Let's all work together to help the children we come in contact with know that we would not trade them for all the money in the world.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I was a story teller from the time my mother started reading to me. I would memorize every book we had in the house and retell the stories to entertain my two older brothers. I loved books and when I learned to read I learned to love them even more. Books could take me anywhere I wanted to go within my imagination and transport me right into the pages of each story.
