More About the Author

I vividly remember when I first considered writing. I was less than five years old, galloping about our yard at the farm, probably pretending to lead a cavalry charge or round up a stampede. On one of the few smooth limestone slabs that made up our sidewalk, I paused and turned to face the east, where the yard sloped down into a grove of evergreens that led to our garden and the highway. I focused on something far beyond the highway, even past the hay meadow and the locust-forested pasture. "Maybe I should write books," I thought. "Someone has to." I pondered this momentous choice for a while. Then I decided that it would be more logical for people who could read to write books, and galloped off again.

However, I took up writing again, as many people do, in my teens. As the years passed and life in the form of marriage and children intervened, I tried repeatedly to give up writing, but it would not give me up. I finally acquiesced.

About twenty years ago, I had a supervisor who was also a writer. Though we called him "The Red Pen from Hell," the gallons of ink he bled over my work improved my writing immensely.

I've worked as a file clerk, teacher's aide, administrative assistant and run my own home day care. I've also had an early morning newspaper route and served as a leader for Girl, Boy and Cub Scouts. I have facilitated a DivorceCare program for several years. For over twenty-five years, I have worked for a cabinet-level agency. Through this position, I have had the opportunity to travel, immerse myself in outdoor recreational pursuits from sailing to archery, meet interesting and influential people and stretch myself professionally. I do a lot of writing for the job. Over the years, I've associated with cops, paramedics, truck drivers, biologists, preachers and other interesting people. What gets them from where they started to where they are today never fails to fascinate me.
