Welcome to my blog!
I’m a conversationalist, an observer, and a passionate participant in life.
I’ve been a suburban housewife in Miami, a police officer in Atlanta, and an educator in Akron. I volunteered with the UN to help supervise Cambodia’s first democratic elections, and have traveled extensively.
And now, in my later years, I’m a recorder of the lessons of my life through essays, stories, and novels. I live in the fourth moment of life, just outside the normal distribution of most people and it is from this place that I write.
I published the children’s book, The Rescue of Balangoda, (Wiltshire Books, 2016), illustrated by the fourth and fifth graders of Altizer Elementary School in Huntington, West Virginia. The book is available for sale on Amazon.com.
I recently published my first book, the memoir The Fourth Moment, Journeys from the Known to the Unknown (2Leaf Press, 2017), and it’s available for sale on Amazon.com.
While the purpose of the blog is to promote my book, it’s also to share my writing. So tune in from time-to-time to check out my latest blog entries and to find out about my personal appearances promoting The Fourth Moment.
