I adore being a wife to my dear hubby, a mother to two grown children and their wonderful spouses, and a grandmother! I have loved reading and story-telling ever since childhood. In college, I majored in Journalism and minored in French and English literature. Since then, I have been a part-time freelance magazine writer and public relations writer. I also dabble in fiction, and I won an award for a novel proposal. Recently, that proposal has become a historical novel known as A Tree Firmly Planted.
