About Me

My PhotoWelcome to my blog!

Initially I started teaching computer software, hardware, and networking in the 1990s. After some years that morphed into tutoring high school dropouts for the GED. I found working with at-risk teenagers so rewarding that I changed my undergraduate major to Education. Upon graduating from the University of South Alabama with a B.S., I began teaching high school history.

Not long after that, as a way to connect with my teenage students, I began writing young adult novels. It is a past time I thoroughly enjoy and have completed several. I hope if you choose to read them that you will enjoy them. Of course, reading has always been a love for me. And in the effort to share more books with more people, I have begun to highlight a few on my blog. Typically, they will be cheap or free but prices do change, so be sure to check before you click any 'buy' buttons. 

As for the rest of my life, I now live in rural Missouri with my two kids, two dogs, two cats, and several chickens.
