I was born in Dallas, Texas in 1954 to missionary parents who traveled around Texas serving various communities. As the fourth of five children I was often left to my own devices to entertain myself. So inventing new stories became my passion at a very early age where I would create small books out of any scraps of paper I could find around the house.
For twenty years I have been teaching in Dallas Independent School District. For the past ten years I have been completing family research on my mother’s and father’s families. The grandmother of two I enjoy writing and spending time with my family.
As an elementary teacher and ten year veteran of genealogy, I have been able to enjoy not only working with children but finding out about my family history. I also enjoys a good cup of coffee, a quiet place to write, and a warm purring cat on my lap while I type.
