About the Author
I was born in Willows, California. My family moved to Southern California when I was eight. Grade school, high school, junior college. A weaving of memorizing Shakespeare in English class, playing clarinet in the high school marching band, and getting an “A” in gym class one semester—my sole physical education triumph. Marrying. Moving to Ohio and back to California. Moving to Washington State. Working nights in a nursing home for six years so that I could be home during the day with my children. Completing a secretarial degree and finding employment in an attorneys’ office. Divorcing and forging a new life for my daughters and me. The opportunity to complete my college education “at home”, instead of having to travel over two hundred miles, came when Western Washington University opened a branch campus at our local junior college. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in 1992. In the years since, I have studied sign language and learned to square dance. I served as secretary of our local square dance club for six years and was my club’s editor of Footnotes, our state square dance magazine. I served as the Publicity Representative for our county unit of the American Cancer Society for twelve years. Each time I decided to quit and let someone else do the job, another person I cared about and loved was stricken with cancer, and I couldn’t quit. I had always enjoyed writing, but never dreamed that I could do it for real. When my younger daughter was three months old, I decided I wanted to do something for me that was inexpensive and could be done at home in my “spare” time. I began writing my first novel. Through the years, my quiet time became a source of much comfort in periods of stress and chaos, even when my characters were ornery and, refusing to do what I told them, went their own ways into situations I would never have willingly led them. I told them so, but they wouldn’t listen. My first novel, The Longing of the Day, was published in 2000, just a month before my younger daughter’s twenty-fifth birthday. My “spare” time turned out to be a lot sparer than I had imagined! Since then, I have had three more novels published. Each novel tells its own story, but the individuals’ lives are bound, each to each, in ways they could never have foreseen.
