When my first Siamese cat gave birth to six kittens on my bed, my appreciation for differences and the love of cats started. Cats and students have been a big part of my life for fifty years. Creative Writing was among the high school English courses I taught over my forty years in the classroom. I always wrote with my students. It provided me with knowledge of the assignment and led me down my own path of discovery. After retirement I was able to follow my passion of writing for young readers. I enjoy reading my books in elementary school classrooms and talking to my audience. They always provide me with amazing ideas and I have been able to use some of them to create new stories. I live in Colorado with my husband and one senior cat. I also enjoy being an active grandmother.
Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the leaves changing color and the crisp air. A trip to the beautiful Rocky Mountains to observe the wildlife in their natural habitat fills me with appreciate for nature. It is also a time for me to reflect on the summer. Although this summer was a challenging time for me, I also had some enjoyable times. Probably the highlight was spending time with my husband and grandson in Hawaii. I had not been there since my husband was on R&R while in Vietnam. This time we were able to share the experience with our grandson. Pearl Harbor, a Luau, snorkeling, and shopping for gifts made the experience something we will always remember. So, I welcome fall but embrace fond memories of summer.
