Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
As the sole female in a houseful of five guys (one husband and four sons), writing a book about life on the 'ole testosterone farm was a no-brainer. Speaking of "no brains," I'm up to my ears in examples, which is why I penned a light-hearted look at the wonderful world of guys titled "Guys and Other Near Humans." So welcome to some wild and wacky adventures from the "farm," where old age and treachery trump youth and inexperience every time. Available from Uncial Press. See below.

Check out for some of my other titles, including: Dream Delayed, What You Need to Know About Kids, Perhaps & Unless, Doxology in the Dark, and McFriends.


Are forgiveness and reconciliation synonymous? A probing novella set in the gentle Hill Country of south-central Texas, McFriends explores this question as it traces a fading friendship between principals Sylvia Winthrop and Claire Sinclair. The prevalence of today's "drive-thru" relationships and "fast food friends" is also examined, showing why both leave us hungry and unsated. Recently released from Long Story Short Publishing.

Shaking My Head and Chuckling

I received positive responses from two potential publishers this week. Both are interested in my mss. and included some advice for re-writes, "par for the course." Some of the synthesized comments included:

- Plot too complicated

- Plot too simple

- Too much dialogue

- Not enough dialogue

- Too many characters

- Needs more characters

- Moves too quickly from one scene to the next

- Moves too slowly from one scene to the next

- Not enough… Continue

Stille Nacht

Hassled, harried, stressed-out? This time of year gets a little nutty, huh? Take just over two minutes to enjoy Manheim Steamroller's exquisite rendition of Silent Night.

Best wishes for a bright and blessed season of celebration.

Merry Christmas.

“Hand over the chocolate and no one gets hurt!”

Whenver I'm sitting down - which isn't very often - I feel compelled to be reading something. Anything. Even the back of a cereal box. I've loved books since mom and dad read aloud to me as a little sprout. If I'm not reading, I'm usually writing. My newest title, Guys and Other Near Humans was released last spring by Uncial Press.

I've authored ten books to date, including… Continue

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! The blessings we ask for this season
Aren't the kind that come wrapped with a bow;
We're asking for gifts from the heart,
Ones we need and never outgrow.
May we see in these bright decorations
With their colors and lights all aglow,
The beauty and wonder of life
That God's world was created to show.
Let the peace and goodwill of this season
Be feelings that we can extend
Far into the following year
To our neighbors, our family, and friends.
Most of all, may we always remember
To open our hearts every day and share all the love and the joy
In a special and meaningful way.

Cereal boxes are fun to read! I too read and have always read everything. Signage, pill bottles, random pieces of paper. Hi! fellow writer.
