My passion is to point people to the love of Christ through poems, devotionals, articles and books.
I was born, raised and educated in east Texas. I married a minister and we have served the Lord together for 25 years. We have written, with the Lord's great help and mercy, six living epistles; who are now 26, 24, 23, 22, 20, and 18.
As a MOPS Mentor, I have written many devotionals and articles for Mothers of Preschoolers.
I am currently Children's Programmer at Fort Stockton Public Library. It has been a wonderful opportunity to write short stories, skits, reader's theater and puppet shows for my programs.
My debut novel, Washout Express, is coming soon from Harbourlight Books/The Pelican Group.
