About Me


I'd like to introduce myself by sharing a few facts:

  • I've been a Christian since the age of 12.  Although I grew up in a Baptist church, I became Catholic at the age of 20.  My faith is very important to me.  God is my strength and salvation!
  • I've been married to my very best friend for 30 years, and I'm the mother of a 23 year old son and 17 year old daughter.  We live in a small, rural community in north central Texas.  Family and friends are what's important to me in this life!
  • I was an educator in the public school system of Texas for 25 years and have a master's degree in Instructional Media.  I currently work for a Regional Education Service Center training superintendents, principals, paraprofessionals, and teachers.  (That's my "day job.")
  • I've always loved to read and have dreamed of being a writer for a very long time. 
  • This blog is about my adventures breaking into the kidlit publishing industry.  I think I'm in for a wild ride!
