I love the beach. My first memory of the beach was a trip with family when I was four years old. As a teenager, and because I was an only child, my parents allowed me to bring along a friend on our beach trips. Adulthood brought me trips to the beach with my BFF, and I’ve even enjoyed solitude at the ocean on business trips. I shared my love of the beach with my own family, and now my children and grandchildren take pleasure in their beach trips.
So, it’s no surprise that I’ve finally written a story with my characters visiting a beach. I enjoyed writing Just You and Me, where Allison and Jim’s adventures take place at Panama City Beach, Florida, in 1958 before the location became a favorite destination for Spring Breakers.
I began writing Just You and Me on September 6, 2020. In October that year, my husband passed away. He was a great supporter of my writing, and I knew he would want me to finish this book. I completed the first draft of Just You and Me in late January 2021. Then came the editing of the first draft and polishing the story for publication, which is more difficult for me than writing the first draft.
I write sweet Southern romance novels set mainly in the American South in the 1950s and inspirational nonfiction. In my novels, I hope you’ll find inspiration and a gentle—yet compelling—story that is intriguing and entertaining. About my nonfiction books, a reader wrote that I offer spiritual tonic and hope.
I like to laugh with people but not at people. I don’t like to see or hear about people or animals being abused. I’m a spectator fan of several sports, my favorite being tennis. I don’t like being in the dark and am fearful of snakes! I don’t enjoy being in elevators. I can’t jump rope. I played varsity basketball in high school. I would describe myself as hopeful, enthusiastic, and optimistic.
