I was born in Columbus, Ohio, but was raised in Richmond, Virginia. I have a loving and supportive husband, two wonderful daughters, and four awesome grandchildren. An interesting fact about myself: I am legally blind, yet I write children’s books--go figure! I taught elementary school in Virginia and Florida for 37 years, telling all kinds of fictional stories to my students along the way. Once I retired from teaching, I decided to put those stories down on paper for other children to enjoy. It is the desire of my heart to stimulate the imagination of children so that one day they can become creative, expressive authors themselves.
