I began writing in the 7th grade. My first inspiration was when President Kennedy was killed. I was so sad and I was not exactly sure why. I sincerely grieved watching the news night after night - the grief of Jacqueline and her two little children; it was just so sad to me. I can still feel the pain that I felt whenever I recall those days.
That's when I decided to put my feelings on paper. I wrote a story about a twelve-year-old girl whose name was Debbie - go figure - who won a trip to the White House - and was able to stay for one week. Like that would ever happen!
When I was in 9th grade, my English teacher, Mrs. Harlan, informed me that some of my friends had turned in a book report on the book I wrote. I was shocked!
Mrs. Harlan told me she was very impressed with my writing, and that she hoped to see something of mine in print before she died.
I remember feeling so happy and proud that day - I left her room floating on a cloud.
That was in 1965. I continued to write through school, marriage, the births of my six children. and well, life!
It wasn't until 2009 that I had the time to actually write my first book, finally publishing it in 2014 - 'MYSTIC ANGEL' - the first of three in the 'MYSTIC TRILOGY", 'MYSTIC LAKE' was published 2014 and 'MYSTIC MANSION' will finally be released September 5th. 2019. To be honest, this has been the hardest book to write- because it is ending. I'm not sad that it is ending, I just want it to end right!
The Mystic Trilogy is the story of the wealthy Allen family whose peaceful life in San Clemente, California is disrupted by a letter. They find themselves in the middle of a mystery, murder, romance and a world they never knew existed.
I love to write! I love to create characters and places and situations. The truth is they are already in my head and I just bring them to life.
This journey has been so rewarding! A lot of work - a lot of prayers - a lot of sacrifice - and a lot of FUN! Mostly fun! I love sharing my stories with you.
