Bio

After twenty-six years of teaching, I retired and focused on writing. In the beginning, I wrote articles and lesson plans for BrightHub Education. Then I began writing fiction for young readers. During the pandemic, I have been taking a novel-writing class to challenge myself. It’s a lot different than writing a short story! But the first draft of my first novel, The Right Address, is completed. It’s the story of a twelve-year-old girl and her six-year-old brother, who run away from their foster home. A guardian angel is secretly helping them find a better life.

They meet new friends and find places to sleep and eat. But how long can they last in the winter weather? And who is the strange man watching them?
