Deep in the heart of Texas, an introverted girl dreamed of writing a best-selling novel. Little did she know that after teaching for too many years to count, she would find her passion for writing historical fiction and picture book biographies for kids.

With a love of history, a captive audience (her 7th & 8th graders!) and a desire to write, she leapt into the world of writing and publishing. Although she is not published yet, the dream is still alive!

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”

–Madeleine L’Engle
