Falling in love and getting married and becoming a mom to four children took up a great deal of time, but somewhere in my mid twenties I began to formulate the story of SEASON of the FLAME. It wasn't until 1983 that I finally finished the manuscript and sent it out to various publishers, all the while trying and failing to interest agents. It was when I was in my seventies that I decided to self-publish and the book came our in 2008.

My third book, REDEMPTION, is a ghost story,the plot of which has been told on my opening page.

The little girl in the story, Kelly, is a lot like the little girl I was once upon a time, before I became an adult and became skeptical about angels and ghosts.. But love is the signifying emotion that ties the story together and inspires readers to believe in the redemption of the human soul.
