Growing up in a family of six kids in Clovis, New Mexico, home of Cannon Air Force Base and the Santa Fe Railroad, I spent countless hours in a rocking chair, daydreaming about what it would be like to be someone else. Little did I know then that I was simply creating stories in my head. Then one day I learned that I could write them down.

Through my writing, I’ve been able to explore many subjects. My goal is always to get to the truth through the people and places I write about, real or imagined. Along the way, I’ve encountered many roadblocks and detours, but I’ve pressed ahead and kept my eyes on the goals I mapped out years ago.

My work has appeared in Family Circle Magazine, Air Force, Army & Navy Times, Family: The Magazine for Military Families, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Albuquerque Journal, Clovis News Journal, and in three anthologies: “Because I Fly,” by McGraw-Hill, “Lessons From Our Children,” by Health Communications, Inc. and “Hearts of Steel,” by Military Writers Society of America.

In 2008, Leatherneck Publishing released my debut novel “The Final Salute.” The following year, Army Wife Network selected it as their July 2009 book club pick and Military Writers Society of America awarded it the Silver Medal. In July 2011, the Kindle Edition was released by Navigator Books.

I am the mother of two grown sons, Thomas (an award-winning artist) and J.P. (a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Army).  I live in Colleyville, TX, with my husband, Tom, a retired fighter pilot, and my Chocolate Lab, Bubba.

She published her first article in high school back in 1965.  Her writing credentials include many magazine, newspaper & web articles.  She also wrote columns — “The History of Aerial Applications” for AG Pilot International and one on writing topics for webzine “Scribe & Quill.”  She is a ghostwriter, an editor and a web, newspaper & book designer.

She has been a member of MWSA since 2006 and has served as Secretary and MWSA Webmaster since January of 2008.  Her skills include Management, Project Management, Web Site Design, Writing and Layout.  She volunteered for the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center for several years and has led various corporate, community and volunteer committees & organizations. Her goal is to help veterans record their piece of history — for themselves, their families, their communities — and our country.

“It all started when I wrote ‘In the Shadow of Suribachi’,” she says.  “It’s basically the story of my father’s experiences as a young Marine at the Battle of Iwo Jima.  That book has my heart.  It was also the beginning of my working to get veterans’ stories written and published.  Working with MWSA is an extension of that dream…to make sure that all of our history is recorded and recognized.”

In July 2011, the Kindle Edition was released by Navigator Books.  In this novel, a Vietnam vet and father of three is haunted by the memories of dead friends killed in air mishaps, and must deal with a devious commander, an animal-crazed neighbor whose husband hates pilots, a beautiful, but suspicious wife and a rebellious teenage daughter. The last thing he needs is another war.
