I am delighted that you are here at my website. Let me tell you a little about myself. I am a former medical professional (Registered Nurse, specialized in public health) turned to writing. My writing career began several years ago as a freelance writer for ProMedica Health Systems – a hospital and health conglomerate in lower eastern Michigan and northern Ohio. At the same time I was contracted as a feature writer for the Telegram newspaper in Adrian, Michigan. These two writing positions led me to become an author.
I am married, and enjoy a wonderful life with my husband, George. We live in Michigan on a beautiful golf course, surrounded with lovely homes and villas.
I love to read as well as write. It was C. S. Lewis who said: “We read to know we are not alone.” I believe there is a lot of truth in that, because I find myself happily transported into exciting worlds when I read, or am writing a novel.
I love antiques and once owned an antique business with my husband – an exciting side career that brought beautiful antique furniture into our traditional home.
As my life has gone on, I realized that dreams and desires often got rearranged and I ended up miles from where I thought I was headed. Life is always changing, and with each new adventure I find my skills and talents also changing. I suspect that you find this true in your life.
