After graduating from Willamette University, I spent the most of next thirty years teaching, counseling, mothering, wifing and of course, writing.
My work has been published in literary magazines, mainstream publications, and professional journals. Several of my short stories have won awards.
Lately, I have concentrated on longer projects and at this point, I've completed five novels. The first, Wednesday Club, uses my teaching life as inspiration, the second, Mom, my prodigal son, the hockey player, and the third, Her Last Words, takes a close look at friendship. The Runaway, a thriller, examines the need, in even the most disturbed of us, for family. This fall Never Too Late will tell of an older woman, a recent widow, who discovers her husband had secrets, clues of which she finds in his pockets.
