BIOGRAPHY I am an art teacher. I have always loved drawing and painting. I love children's books. My first book, (A Day in the Life of Me) is about my childhood growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. I loved playing on the farm with my cousin. I told stories to my students for years and they seemed to enjoy my stories. I decided to put them in a children's book. I created the illustrations. I have gotten great reviews from all the children, parents and teachers who have read my book. I still live across the road from the old farm where our adventures took place. My husband Terry and I live in my great grandparents' old house. Our two children Josie and Jeb grew up here and had wonderful adventures. We love our Blue Ridge Mountain home.
