On June 15, 2015 my first novel, The Collective, was published as an e-book on Amazon.com. This has been a crazy week, which is appropriate when a dream comes true. The dedication on the book says it all, but for those who haven't seen it, all my thanks and heart go to my family who have given me all their love and unquestioning support while I have pursued this goal. Even when my day job as a needlework designer and teacher intruded, putting my writing on hiatus as I met other deadlines, they were there, encouraging me, pushing me, and believing in me. And my special over-the-top thanks to my dearest BFF and biggest fan, my husband of almost forty-six years, Bill. I couldn't have done it without you, Love.
I began writing as soon as I could hold a pen. Then came college, marriage, and kids, and my life was full. A few years ago, both my sons began writing, and that inspired me to dip my pen in the ink well again - figuratively speaking, of course.
