I wear many hats -- author, retired teacher, wife, mother, and grandmother to my six-pack ranging in age from college to almost two.
I live beside the Snake River with Paul, my husband and soul mate of forty-four years, three bouncy Welsh Corgis and two cats.
I'm generally holding a Bible, a pen or a spatula. Actually, there's a lot of similarities between writing and cooking. I stir up a plot or recipe, let it simmer and, many times, watch it boil over!
I'm passionate about reading, writing and promoting literacy. Many of my K-2 students spoke little or no English. I discovered they learned best when concepts (ideas) were presented through stories.
My stories, based on friendship and good values, encourage children to think.
