New Books! If you are looking for nature books for the children in your life, see My Books for two new titles.


If you've come to this site, that probably means you're a writer or a reader--or both, like I am. 


From the time I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to be a writer. In first grade, I won a reading contest by reading 100-some books in one month (156, I think). Today I love making other people's writing sparkle.

This site has been up and running for a few years now, with tweaks here and there, though a few links on the FAQs page are still not working, so on that page you might want to choose the link that has all the questions in one form. I am looking at starting a blog, since I think that will allow more opportunity for interaction and posting commentary.


The last six years I have been busy settling in to a new home . . . and learning how to be a wife and stepmother. After forty-some years of singleness I'm married to a really good man, and stepmother to some very precious young adults. I'm working on getting a better website, but for now this is what I have.


One year my husband and I spent some time in the Smoky Mountains. This little guy (below) decided he liked me, or my finger anyway. He's a red-spotted purple. And yes, it's probably a "he." Many species of male butterflies seek out salt (sweat, damp patches of soil) because they need salt to be able to reproduce. (See more photos from the Smokies on the "fun photos" page.)
