About

My photo

I'm most recently a writer.  In the six plus decades of my life, I've been a wife, mother, grandmother, Jill of all trades though mistress of but a few, and most of the time pretty content with my lot.  As a much younger person, I believed I was called to write, but life and living distracted me for most of those decades.  An unwilling transplant from the South,  twenty years ago I unintentionally landed in the geographical center of the US.  Writing came about in part due to the unwillingness, I expect.  When caring for family, gardening, and renovating a century-old house failed to provide sufficient creative outlets, I turned to the one thing I always intended to do.  Eight titles later, I'm grateful I found myself while Lost in the Plains!

I Love Interviews!


I like the idea of interviews, but I have to admit knowing just how to answer those questions is tricky.  To say enough--cleverly, I hope--without saying too much is challenging.  But I love the idea of talking about my journey as a writer, not because I think it's particularly fascinating in itself, but because I'm still so amazed that I have a journey as a writer to talk about! 
I'm grateful to Peggy Browning for inviting me to put in an appearance on her blog Fifty Odd, showcasing women writers over 50. I more than qualify based on age, and after reading the interview, I'm struck once again by the fact that I really am a writer now! Just goes to show there's no sell-by date on dreams coming true! Please have a look and let me know what you think.
