About Me

The seed for my love of writing was planted long ago in a high school journalism class in Topeka, Kansas. For many years, I was a military wife and mother of five. When the children grew up, I started working for a weekly newspaper in Madison, Alabama, and eventually became its editor. After retiring from the paper, I wrote "Once Upon a War-The Diary of a Waiting Wife," a Vietnam memoir. Over time, I became interested in the plight of threatened species and wrote "Little Hal: A Pygmy Hippo in Danger" and "KANTU: Unsafe in Africa." Both are targeted to ages 7-12, as well as adults who are concerned about wildlife preservation.

Additional Information

I am affiliated with Zeta Tau Alpha national sorority, the Topeka High School Historical Society, LinkedIn, and the WAE network for Writers, Agents and Editors. I am the grandmother of 20 and great-grandmother of two.
