I am an "Ozarkian" which means I grew up in southwest Missouri. I love helping others and have been a nurse for over 30 years. I have always enjoyed reading and learned to love writing while in middle school. I have had several individual poems published over the years. I first dreamed of writing a novel while still in high school but my first novel, Red Skies At Dawn was published the day after my fiftieth birthday. My writing is based in part on my own experience, however the majority of it comes from my vivid imagination. I have several books in progress at this time and hope to finish at least one this year. I starting painting last year and found out I love it. I guess that makes me an aspiring artist as well.
