In addition to writing freelance, I have worked as a bookkeeper, a journalist, a librarian, a church secretary, a sales clerk and payroll clerk, and as Lifestyle Editor of The Easley Progress. Because I chose to stay home with my children, my entire full-time working career lasted only twelve years; my other jobs were part-time. However, writing has always been my passion.
My hobbies are growing plants, both inside and out, cooking, trying new recipes, reading, traveling, exercising and spending time with family and friends. My husband Marion and I have three married children and eight grandchildren, ranging in age from twenty-four to one year. Being with them is my greatest joy.
