I had the idea for A Week in the Country about 20 years before I found time to write the novel in 2012. When I started writing, the words just flowed out of me. I loved the story and the characters, and I have received many nice comments on the book. People even ask me for directions for the fictional town of Walker Valley. I recently published Miss Lydia’s Book Club, and am currently working on a third novel, The Mail Comes at Three, which will be published in 2019.
I have always loved to draw and started watercolor painting in 2014, attending classes in Knoxville and San Antonio. I create my own greeting cards for friends and family, and like to find new ideas for my paintings. I also enjoy painting bookmarks to sell and give away.
I started playing the fiddle in 1999….and there was lots of screeching going on, but my musical friends would not let me give up. Now I have a wonderful time playing music and singing with my friends. We perform every week for assisted living facilities and other senior activities, and especially our veterans.
