My husband and I are the parents of six children; three boys and three girls. When I'm not busy writing or doing mom things, I still love to read, but can usually be found doing laundry, dishes, running errands, napping, eating chocolate or exercising (not necessarily in that order).
I grew up in a small Colorado town that offered little in the way of entertainment. I escaped through reading and later on a Continental Trailways bus.
I dreamed of being a writer, but took the safe route CPA-hood. I finally pursued my dream and realized that both sides of my brain can be used—sometimes even at the same time!
I am the author of the Faith, Hope, & Charity series: Finding Faith, Having Hope, and Choosing Charity, (Bonneville Books) a trilogy of inspirational novels. I've also forayed into humor with Life’s Alphabet Soup: When Your Children Make You Eat Your Words, a funny collection of real-life stories of a working mother of six.
I'm the mother of six (three adopted), "granny T" to five. My first novel was published when I was 44. I used to be so shy I wouldn't go to a store by myself (even as a teenager). I love sweets and all things chocolate. I hate pickles and all things vinegar. I taught my children terrible habits like "who can belch the loudest" which causes my husband a lot of embarrassment.
I love to hear from readers and friends (and very rich relatives who wish to bequeath their estates to me):
