Where the wind comes right behind the rain.

I began writing before I could write. I would make up dialogue and tell friends what to say. We charged a nickle a performance to "the old people" in the neighborhood. Our stage was a front porch with a blanket curtain. Our little group was quite successful which kept us in bubble gum and popsicles most summers.

In the 70's I had a column in a very small town rag. I got serious about writing and made a little money penning articles for a couple of women's magazines.

I have written brilliant ad copy as well as very dull assembly instruction manuals.

I am a Pundit on Policymic.

As a "ghost" there are several works I can't brag about.

After receiving a few awards for creative non-fiction and how-to articles, I returned to writing short-stories and novels.

This year I was honored to be a member of the inaugural cast of Oklahoma City’s production of Listen to Your Mother.
