Q & A
I write because, I, like everyone else, have an imagination, and I enjoy putting my thoughts on paper.
‘My Ideal Partner’ describes how I met, married, and cared for my late husband at home for six years after he suffered two strokes that paralyzed his left side.
I’m inspired by many things, places, and events.
I don’t call any one work a masterpiece. Almost everything I’ve written is brilliant, in its own way.
Don’t sweat the small stuff.
I would love to be a guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor hosting.

I would like to be known for my stylish prose and poetry and lovely singing voice.
I plan to publish a collection of short stories set in Wyoming, my home state. I started working on this last year before My Ideal Partner was published ahead of schedule. Since I haven’t had time to get back to it, I don’t know when it will be available. Meanwhile, you can read many of my poems and short stories on my website.
My books can be purchased from Amazon, Createspace, Smashwords, and other sources. On my website, you’ll find a page for each of my books that contains ordering links.
