Did you ever wonder what would happen if you took the road less traveled by?

This was a question I often asked myself.

In 1992, I decided to head down a new highway.

I left my lovely job in education and became a children's book author.

Did I miss the children, teacher friends, Blue Cross and Blue Shield? You bet!

But I wrote every day ( well almost), collected reams of rejections, and kept sending out manuscripts

In August of 94, the first contract call came.

Now 22 books later the days flash by with writing, researching, revising, submitting, rejections (Yes, published authors still get them), email, school visits, conference presentations, and book signings.

My husband Earl encourages, edits, advises, takes pictures, helps with research , updates my website which he designed,and prints out maps to schools and bookstores.

I love meeting my readers. And I look forward to hearing from you. Visit my website at
