I am a native Texan and proud to be one. Although I haven’t lived there since childhood, I’ve retained the accent that gives me away. I tell people it’s my cultural heritage. My Hubby even sends me back to Texas at least once a year so I can “renew my accent,” as he puts it.

I was a stay-at-home mom, raising two children while following Hubby’s several career moves. At age 30, I got the bright idea to go to college to earn a degree in mathematics and one in math education. I worked as a substitute teacher for a while, which gave me flexibility in my schedule and provided a little fun money for family vacations and teenager wants-and-needs.

After our oldest child graduated, I went to back to work to help put our children through college. I worked in a lot of different fields: math teacher, secretary, statistician, timber sale accountant, archaeological technician, and best and longest of all, natural resources technical writer/editor.

Hubby and I eventually found ourselves empty-nesters and retired which provided new freedoms. We travel quite a bit around the western states, and we have even taken a couple of trips to Europe. But there’s no place like home. I began writing and editing fiction, 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
