I am a wife of 47 years, Mom of four and soon to be Grandma of nine. Our youngest is expecting twin boys. I have always loved the magic of words; their look and sound and infinite combinations that can convey emotion and thought and possibilities galore. When our kids were growing up, I authored a human interest column for a local newspaper using everyday adventures as springboards. I'm honored to have been published in such varied magazines as Liguorian, Today's Christian Woman, Christian Living In The Mature Years and Entrepreneur, and have also contributed pieces on Her View From Home.
