Welcome to My Home Page
I have been a professional writer since 1983, turning out several dozen chapter books, some nonfiction, lots of magazine pieces, and many plays for children. I'm still writing and still make a few school visits each year I'm also trying to keep up with my husband who loves to travel.
We have always owned horses and dogs so most of my chapter books involve animals, and many of the situations I've written about are based on things that actually happened to me. Unlike real life; however, my books all have happy endings.
Recently my husband and I made life simpler by moving from our 9-acre horse farm to a one-level house on the edge of town. We miss having horses, but we love the house because it has neat stuff like a garage door opener, a screened-in porch, and a garbage disposal. Wow! We don't even have a dog at the moment because we seldom stay home.
