I’m the new kid on the block and I’m happy to be here. When Robin invited me to join, I was a bit intimidated by the roster of wonderful writers here. I’ve know some of them for a long time and I’m looking forward to getting to know the others. I’ve read many of their books. So I had a “girl fan” moment and thought “I’m not worthy.”
When I turned to my husband to explain in a breathless bliss that I was about to join this blog, he looked so confused it was comical. But he’s used to me not making any sense. After a long time of contemplating (about two minutes) and in spite of all the plates I have spinning, I said YES. So here I am, ready to inspire you (and be inspired) about life and fiction.
I am a Southern girl, born and raised in Southwest Georgia. We moved to Louisiana after living in Atlanta for a while. We lived in Louisiana for over thirty years. Now we are in the Panhandle of Florida, on a quiet bay. (Well, I usually scream when I finish a book or get a new contract and that scares even the dolphins.)
I’ve been married to my sweetheart for forty years. We married right out of high school but we first met when we were about five years old. (A date in a wading pool.) We’ve had ups and downs and we’ve been all around but we are blessed. We have two grown children, a daughter and a son.
I love cooking, shopping, and shoes. I always wanted to write. I wrote short stories in grammar school and sold them for a quarter each on the playground. (About the same commission I get now, come to think of it!)
While I’m introverted and shy, I have a bit of an extroverted streak. If I see you in person, I’ll probably grin and hug you. (That tends to scare people, too.) I’m thankful to be here and I can’t wait to share some Wonderful Wednesdays with YOU!
