I read and write fiction, poetry, and non-fiction for children. But my dream to be an author didn’t begin until I had children of my own! My favorite book as a child was Nurse Nancy. Before I was a children’s author, I was a registered nurse. I’ve always loved working with children, as a nurse and now as a children’s author. I enjoy talking to them about books and writing. When I’m not writing or spending time with my grandkids, I enjoy walking, country line dancing and reading mysteries. My husband and I have six grown children, 11 grandchildren and one great grandchild. We live in O’Fallon, Missouri.
