I wrote and illustrated little books for my little brother when I was in grade school. I have written sporadically, in diaries and journals, short stories piling up first in notebooks, now in computer files, and finally, with the support of my husband, I finished a novel for which I now seek representation. This dear hubby of mine has worked his way up in his career, reaching a point where I need only work part-time. Since my time and energy went into assisting him, he is returning the favor, allowing me time to write and to focus on submitting my work. He even builds my website. I am blessed.
