I am a native Texan and proud to be one. Although I haven’t lived there since childhood, the accent has stayed with me and gives me away. I tell people it’s my cultural heritage. 

I was a stay-at-home mom, raising two children while following Hubby’s several career moves. At age 30, I went to go to college and earned degrees in mathematics and math education, minoring in history. My degrees and ability to write well led me a career of technical research and writing. After working in a number of positions, I found my niche as a natural resources technical writer/editor where I worked for many years.

After retiring, I began writing and editing fiction; attending numerous conferences and workshops; and doing all I could to learn the craft of fiction writing. I love sharing my experiences and what I’ve learned. Writing and helping others write brings me a lot of joy.

I started my small business as well, Andonja LLC. The name comes from blending my children’s names and a grandson’s name. Under that business umbrella, I sell my handmade purses, quilts, books, and other craft items. 

Hubby and I travel quite a bit around the western states, and have even taken a couple of trips to Europe. But there’s no place like home. I spend my days reading and writing, and Hubby bicycles as often as he can. We are both following our dreams.

  1. Love the new look of your website. You have done very well. I could use a little help with mine if you ever get time.
    I still have you as a featured site on my home page. It is good to see that at least I refer people to quality sites.
    Love you always, Hubby
