Write Your Words for the Generations to Come Rotating Header Image

About Me

I spent the first eighteen years of my life on our small family farm snuggled into the Allegheny Mountains of Pennsylvania. My total sanguine personality has been married to my phlegmatic Larry for thirty-four years (a lot of good writing material there, later maybe). We are the proud parents of three grown “children” (more good writing material) and have fully adopted our awesome daughter-in-law and two grand-cats. I taught high school English, Speech and Drama in a small private Christian school in Bulverde, Texas, for fifteen years, then helped to open a new Christian school. I retired as secondary principal at Living Rock Academy in May 2017.

My writing has included three books, two sales manuals for two different companies, a Bible study for our ladies’ ministry, devotionals, book reviews, and articles for various magazines, journals, and newspapers. For three years, I wrote stories and test questions for Forde-Ferrier, writers of the STAAR testing in the state of Texas. I am an editor for Texas Pentathlon/Octathlon and Lone Star Competitions, and I love to edit authors’ books.

I am founder and co-leader of Hill Country Christian Writers and founder and teacher of Legacy Writers. I am also co-owner of Franklin Scribes Publishers where my greatest joy is to help first-time authors navigate the murky waters of publication.

Experience the joy of receiving your first copy of your book. My sweet publisher hand delivered the proof copy of my first book to my classroom. Bittersweet — so excited to see my book in print; however, retirement from teaching English was only seven school days away!

Contact me for writing help via classes or one-on-one, editing, publishing, or teaching a group of you and your friends to write down your words for your generations to come.

Let’s meet soon. I love to talk about all things writing and would especially love to visit with you!
