Many, many years ago, in Mercedes, Texas, Dr. Edwards delivered a chubby little baby girl, that would be me. Then five years later, my family, including me, moved to Georgia. After searching for a practically perfect man for seventeen years, I found him. His last name, Edwards. Thirty-five plus years later we are still happily married. My life has been filled with a variety of experiences. Some were great and some, well let's just say I have learned many lessons the hard way.
I am active in Sisters in Crime Atlanta Chapter, and I sit on the advisory board of Rockdale Cares, Inc., a non-profit advocacy group for the developmentally challenged.
I began writing in high school but not seriously until 1999. I write traditional mysteries and my biggest influences are Agatha Christie, Anne Perry, Caroline Graham, Elizabeth Peters, and my family.
