Life inspires my writing and my writing inspires my life. Twenty years of government work provides the basis for my stories.

Background Information

I vividly remember when I first considered writing. I was less than five years old, galloping about our yard at the farm, probably pretending to lead a cavalry charge or round up a stampede. On one of the few unbroken limestone slabs that made up our sidewalk, I paused and turned to face the east, where the yard sloped into a grove of evergreens that led to our garden and the highway. I focused on something far beyond the highway, past the hay meadow and the locust-forested pasture. “Maybe I should write books,” I thought. “Someone has to.” I pondered this momentous choice for a while. Then I decided that it would be more logical for people who could read to write books, and galloped off again. However, I took up writing, as many people do, in my teens. As the years passed and life in the form of marriage and children intervened, I tried repeatedly to give up writing, but it would not give me up.

With over twenty years working for a cabinet-level agency, I have observed politics from the inside, on both the personal and public level. Some of those observations have been threaded into my writing. Those experiences, along with my curiosity about human motivation, weave the tapestry that is my writing.

While I primarily write fiction, I also share my world views via blogs and articles.
