About Me


After teaching secondary school English for thirty-one years, I retired and began to focus on writing fiction. Since 2012, I have published  four novels including Becoming Jestina, recently published by Nurturing Faith, Inc.

Writing Roots

 I have always loved to write, and was especially interested in journalism during high school while serving on the newspaper staff. I published articles regularly during my teaching career, and took a course in writing for children and teenagers.
