Good stories, like tornados, pull you away from the familiar 

and drop you into lands of mystery and magic. 


A Solid Foundation


Although my feature articles have appeared in newspapers and trade publications for 25 years, writing was my spare time hobby.

When my husband and I retired in central Florida, I began experimenting with fiction. I credit the talented writers in the Mt. Dora, Orlando and Seminole critique groups for my continuing development.   

An Awarding Journey


To my great surprise, my little stories consistently won contests, earned  four top awards, and five were accepted for anthologies. 

Filling the Bookcase

Friends asked me to gather my stories into one publication, so I compiled several award winners and published "The First Seven" on Kindle and Create Space.
