My poems, stories, articles, and crafts have appeared in mostly children’s magazines, Cricket,  Hopscotch for Girls, Beyond Centauri,  knowonder , My Light, Stories for Children, Characters, Fandangle, Parents and Children Together, Guardian Angel Kids, Story Box Library, and Long Story Short.

My work has also appeared in Senior Times and the nostalgia magazine, Good Old Days.

My greatest happiness comes from spending time with my growing family, but I also derive great pleasure from sharing my imaginative stories with children and from handiworks, such as needle work and a smidgen of painting.

My hobbies are growing flowers and raising butterflies.


Thanks to Elexis King for the beautiful butterfly and characters reading BANNERS. The characters are from my stories.
