Welcome to My Home Page
I have been a professional writer since 1983, turning out several dozen chapter books, some nonfiction, lots of magazine pieces, and many plays for children. I'm still writing and still make a few school visits each year I'm also trying to keep up with my husband who loves to travel.
We have always owned horses and dogs so most of my chapter books involve animals, and many of the situations I've written about are based on things that actually happened to me. Unlike real life; however, my books all have happy endings.
My husband and I recently moved from our 3-bedroom house in Indiana to a 2-bedroom apartment within the city limits of Omaha, Nebraska. This puts us much closer to family and a gives us a lot less work to do. I'm totally enjoying the YMCA swimming pool and singing in an excellent church choir for the first time since I graduated from college.
