I’ve always been enthusiastic about great writing, and couldn’t be happier to work toward turning my passion into something I can share. As I take this journey and prepare two previously written works for publication, I wanted to create an accessible place where I can connect with a wider audience. Here you will find samplings of my work, ranging from excerpts from my novels to more personal pieces, which I invite you to explore and enjoy by clicking the Books link.
About the Author
I’ve always been passionate and deeply appreciative of stories, novels, screenplays, essays, and poetry. As a teacher, I love engaging with students about many aspects of literature. I especially enjoy talking about writing and the process. Now I am going to share some of my work - and this is a huge step for me. Like most people with creative interests, it is a daunting task to “put one’s self out there.” So here I go...After college, I enjoyed nine years in journalism and am in my 19th year teaching. I hold a BA from the University of Texas at San Antonio in English/History and another from Bluefield College in English Education. Let’s see where all this education, experience in life, and love of literature takes me.
Raspberries and Romeo Days
I am extremely proud and honored to share some of my book Raspberries and Romeo Days as I prepare it for publication. I’m excited about bringing this work and another entitled Scenes & Moments to a wider audience and hope you enjoy it.
