Author Bio

In one way or another, she has been writing her entire life, whether it was imaginative stories for her friends, or advertising copy for industrial clients.

She never felt her stories were “good enough” to be published. At the persistent urging of her late husband, she finally agreed to seriously edit and revise one of them and take the plunge.

Years later, her persistence paid off.Her traditionally published historical novel, Promises, won the Marie M Irvine Award for Literary Excellence. Her historical fiction, A Lady Newspaperman's Dilemma won the When Words Count nationwide competition, and Independent Publishers Bronze Book Award.The Campbell Sisters, another historical novel won the CIPA EVVY Bronze Book Award She's also had short stories and creative non-fiction published in anthologies, and her non-fiction essays have appeared in various Chicken Soup for the Soul editions.
