As a child, growing up in a small town with few playmates, I read almost every book in our small local library. My favorites were “Nancy Drew”, “The Hardy Boys”, “Kim” and the “Boxcar Children”. I would create my own stories and act out elaborate dialogues between my dolls and their imaginary friends. For hours, I would create different scenarios and exciting adventures for the people within them. Needless to say, I had a huge imagination and was never bored.
This ardent love for reading and creating stories naturally led to writing. However, having a career, raising two children with the normal hectic buzz of life, left little time for the fun stuff like writing. However, I always had a book to read even if I was so tired I could only read a few pages each night. Many times, I would fall asleep with a book firmly in my grasp, only to awaken suddenly when it hit my face. I remember forcing myself to let it go for the night even though I wanted to read just a few more pages. Sweet Dreams!
Now life has finally slowed down and writing has returned to its rightful place! My sweet husband has become one of my biggest supporters along with my two little black and white Shih Tzu’s named Charlotte and Maya.
I live in Huntsville, Alabama and after 20 plus years of being here, I call it HOME. I frequently sit in one of the rocking chairs on the front porch drinking sweet tea in the summer and coffee in the winter, dreaming up my next story. But I still miss having a front porch swing like the one my grandma had when I was growing up. I think they are the best places to learn and enjoy the wonderful world God has given us.
