About Me

Who am I?

I think of myself mostly as a free spirit. I'm curious about a lot of things and not afraid to try something new and different, though I am not a thrill seeker. 

Creativity came to me late in life. I was more the organizer, manager type. I've been semi-retired for about 10 years now and I have spent most of my free time exploring and discovering my creative side. In all honesty, I am really a dabbler...trying out this and that and seeing what brings me joy. I can only think of two things that I have done consistently throughout my whole and gardening. Creativity has become my passion. I'm having a blast learning new things and I've made a lot of discoveries about myself along the way. 


Many years ago I was encouraged to write a children's book but never was able to get published. With the birth of my grandson, I was inspired to dust off the manuscript and bring it back to life. The result was two books, Grandma's Beach and Meet Ozzie.

Reading stories I wrote to my grandson has been one of my greatest joys.

These books are great for children, ages 7 and 8,  and they are available for purchase through Amazon - just click on the title above and the link will take you right there.

My Blog

Before being a children's author...there was blogging. The discovery of blogging about five years ago opened a whole new world of creativity, adventure and friendships that will last a lifetime. And yes, I have met several of my blogging buddies...super awesome!

Not knowing what I wanted to write about, I called my blog, Destination Unknown and the title still applies today. I generally write about my life, my adventures and family history but occasionally I write about things that interest me or are important to me. Go on the link above to check out my blog.
