About Me

When my last career step paled, I took early retirement from teaching and needed some sort of new goal. Having done a bit of writing before as a reporter and business woman, I selected novel-writing as a challenge, never realizing the difficulties involved. I charged into the world of writing with both feet. Now, I freely admit it's the most difficult, yet satisfying, career of my life.
