Hello everyone,
I have always loved reading. I remember how excited I was when I learned my first word in first grade. Because I loved to read, I also liked to write. I wrote my first story when I was in second grade. But I was never encouraged to continue writing. Life goes on and I became a nurse but I really wanted to be either a kindergarten teacher or interior decorator. When your a nurse you'll always have a job, that's what my family said. But I wasn't totally happy with nursing even though I spent about 15 years as a psych nurse. So I returned to college for interior design. I worked in that field for 8 years. Then I had an offer to be the story lady at our library. I filled that position for 12 years. I loved that job. I read the best books. I mingled with the best people,kids under 4 feet tall. This is when my writing desires were awakened again. For the past 8 years I have been writing in earnest and loving every minute. I have sold one article to a children's magazine and another slated to appear in the same magazine in November 2006. I have a historical fiction ms out at several houses and a nonfiction article out to several mags at present.
books by english authors, cooking, gardening, going to scbwi conferences, middle grade fiction, mysteries, needlework, reading picture books, sewing, watching my granddaughters, ya's
