I am an author from Western Pennsylvania. I drove around Ohio with my home health job allowing ample time to dream and put to flight my publishing career. The flat land of Trumbull County allowed my imagination to soar. Four novels were birthed in this time.
I always wanted to be a writer, but chose nursing as the practical career. I thought I would be like my idol, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and publish when I was older like she did at sixty. I was eight years ahead of that goal. And now as I enter my sixieth year, I hope to revitalize my publishing journey. Look for new novels in the near future. I had been stuck, yet I feel refreshed and ready to put more to the test.
