My favorite childhood memories involve sitting around my grandmother's
kitchen table listening in while my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles told amazing stories of times gone by.
Sometimes I laughed until I'd lose my breath.
Sometimes I sat quietly, on the verge of tears, hearing of the bravery and perseverance shown by those who'd gone before me.
What I wouldn't give to have known them.
History has been a passion ever since.
Couple that with an insatiable love for story and there
you have the heart of what inspires me to write books
with a timeless message of love and hope.
In many ways, I've come full circle.
The legacy torch carried by my parents and grandparents
has now been passed to me. I pray my novels convey all the
charm, romance, wit and wisdom of the past to enlighten
and fascinate a whole new generation.
MORE ABOUT ME:
I am a child of the Southwest. Raised in New Mexico, I now live in Texas with my husband of 34 years. I have two wonderful grown kids and four grandboys that can leap tall buildings in a single bound! My family is truly the heart of who I am.
The only thing I love more than my family (and books) is Jesus. My sincerest hope is that you sense that in my writing.
