Mentored by the late Jack Bickham. . .
I graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a degree in Professional Writing. After years of raising a family and earning a living, and with encouragement from friends, I decided to chase my lifelong dream of writing a novel.
I love history. Always have. So it seemed natural to write a novel of a fascinating time and place swept into the corner of American history. Studying under the likes of Donald Maass, Lisa Cron, and William Bernhardt, I have crafted Brittle Leaves On An Angry Wind.
