I studied at the University of Colorado, UCLA, Amarillo College, and West Texas A&M. I retired from United Airlines when I moved to Amarillo, Texas in 1991, and became a professional writer and freelance journalist.
I have written for the Amarillo Globe-News, Canyon News, Amarillo Observer, Accent West, and Focus on the Family Magazine, Human Events, and Consumer Resource, with over 200 articles in print. I contributed to Daily Devotions for Writers
I’m a graduate of Bible Study Fellowship, Christian Leaders, Authors & Speakers Services Seminar, and Personality Training Workshop. I write and speak on writing, personalities, networking, inspirational subjects, and C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.
I am the quintessential late bloomer. I married at 27, gave birth at 38, and went back to college and first published at 48. I was a Washington D.C. fellow at 50, and started speaking at 55. I completed my first nonfiction book, Smart Steps for Safe Travel at 59. A grandmother at 71.
