Background Information

Hello, loyal readers--Welcome to AuthorsDen.  Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate all the love and support you have shown me.

After 34 years, I retired from the United States government. My husband, Lamont, and I moved from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to central Florida.  We live in a retirement community called The Villages, Florida.  We have two beautiful daughters, Nicole who lives in Washington, D.C. and Natalie lives in Chicago, Illinois.

My passion is writing.  When I was a young girl I was told that I needed to find another career because an author doesn't make money.   I have to say, my teacher and parents were right--authors write because they like it. 

I had a wonderful, successful career working for the United States government until I retired.  Despite my success I knew something was missing.  As part of my job, I traveled all over the United States.  To occupy the empty hours away from my family, I wrote novels. I submitted them to publishers and received nothing, but rejection letters.

Finally, at the age of 60, my first book was published in January 2006--Sunday Golf. Don't let anyone discourage your dreams.

Birth Place
Connellsville, PA USA

I belong to the Lady Lake FWA writing group that encourages writers through critiquing, workshops, lectures, book fairs, and conferences. I also belong to several writing groups in The Villages, Florida and sponsor The Write Corner for writers. I am an Eastern Star, enjoy bowling, reading, golfing, and socializing with friends.

Additional Information

My first book was released in January 2006, Sunday Golf. My second book,Intuition (co-author, Deborah Seibert, was released in May 2006. In November 2006, After Bowling was released. In May 2007, Casserole Parade was released and I'm currently working with a major movie studio as to making it into a big screen movie. The sequel to Casserole Parade was released January 2008. With the success of Sunday Golf, I have become a guest speaker at clubs, organizations, and the public library. I also conduct workshops. I love to motive, help, and share information. I started a small writing group--Writers Supporting Writers. The main focus of the forum is sharing information as well as critiquing each others work. Through my encouragement, in 2007, two writers have become published. I believe in giving back to the community. When someone buys one of my works, they help someone in need. With every book that I sell I donate proceeds to the Florida Wildwood Food Pantry as well as other charitable organization that help others.
