About me

Gender Female
Occupation Retired R.N. and Business Owner
Location TX, United States
Introduction I have always loved books, reading them, handling them, turning the pages, inhaling the book smell. It was a natural progression from loving the printed words to loving to write them, so I have written poetry, short pieces, family story, and faith ponders for many years. In 2006 due to rapidly deteriorating vision, I received 2 cornea transplants for which I am endlessly grateful.
Interests Faith, family, making memories with my grandchildren, writing, music, reading, old rose and herb gardening, cooking, painting, antiques, hospitality, children's books, knitting, sewing, and my cats!
Favorite Movies It's a Wonderful Life, The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, White Christmas, Please Don't Eat the Daisies, The King and I, Les Miserables, You've Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle, Must Love Dogs.
Favorite Music Hymns, Christmas carols, Chant, Classical, Folk.
Favorite Books The Bible, books by C.S.Lewis, Emilie Griffin, Richard Foster, Eugene Peterson, Dallas Willard, Luci Shaw, Francis and Edith Schaeffer, Madeliene L'Engle, Jan Karon, Leigh McLeroy, Charles Martin, Francis Mayes, Maeve Binchy, Rosamund Pilcher, Jodi Picoult, Susan Wittig Albert, cookbooks, and a number of mystery series, among them Frederick Ramsay's and Diane Mott Davidson's. I enjoy finding an author I like and reading everything that person has written.
