I've married to Ross for 33 years and have 3 children. I've been writing forever. I've had a lot of different jobs. I worked in a family business for 7 years. My two vocational callings were being a teacher grades 9-12, and being a registered nurse which required me to go back to school. I loved both. I saw them as ministries. I learned so much about teenagers as a teacher. As a nurse I started out working in a children's psychiatric hospital, working with very young children. I loved it. I also worked in a drug and alcohol detox unit. Eventually, I worked with every age group on pysch units. I started seriouly writing again about 10 years ago to help me cope with the stress of the job. I kept a journal and completed a book in 3 months. It's sitting in a drawer. I had an accident which left me partially disabled, and I was unable to work in a hospital. My next vocation became writing. I had some short stories published, and some short articles published in different magazines and e-zines. The book I have coming out in a few weeks is called Oklahoma Hearts Online.com. It's partially based on real life experience when a friend and I signed up for computer dating while we were in college. We didn't meet our Mr. Perfect. My friend was matched with a garbage collector. So I used the idea of 3 women buying a dating service and puting it online. The book is a romantic suspense written with humor. My publisher is PublishAmerica. They've done a lovely job on the cover. I know that I'm going to have to work my butt off to sale my book. I have a plan. I'm read to go.
My book has come out on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble's website and www.publishamerica.com. I haven't received my copies of the book yet. I get so excited, that I almost make myself sick. The name of the book is Oklahoma Hearts Online.com.
I'm going to start try to arrange some signings soon. I have some good support people.
