Something new and exciting happened on my birthday this year! I published my mystery novel Chameleons of Codington on Amazon and am currently working on Book 2 in the series. I hope you take a chance on my novel and provide a book review on Amazon. As a writer, I am excited and I value what other writers have to say!
I’m so glad you are here! I want my writing to trigger memories of your own. The pleasure of reverie is in meandering thought! Enjoy and Expect the Best!

NOTE: When writing about my childhood days, tracing my 28 grade school moves at first seemed overwhelming and then the detective in me saw it as a mystery to be solved, and the hunt became one of joy and determination. Retracing my life through satellite mapping to write my stories as accurately as possible has been an out-of-body experience. In some cases, the outline of my former home is still visible even though my time there was 60 years ago. The world has swallowed up some of my residences, but even with the changes, I can see what once was. I time-travel when seeing the land images, whether it still held remnants of my past or not, using the moments and maps to remember and re-live. I have gathered snaps to remind me of those long-ago times in my life and found it led me to brief glimpses of a time gone, which became my life essays.
