     "The Joy of Writing"

Website roads.jpg

     My love of writing began when I was a young girl as I found great solace in expressing my thoughts on  paper as well as collecting inspirational poetry.  It was then that I ecstatically discovered the power of words to convey empowering messages to others. My loving parents emphasized getting a good education, being responsible, and honoring God in all things. Reared in the city of Chicago, their impactful influence and the desire I had to express myself on paper, created a wellspring of joy whenever I placed a pencil in my hands.

   As a child and later as a mother,  I loved   reading  a variety of books. Some of my favorite childhood books and authors are:  Curious George, The Cat in the Hat,  Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Corduroy,  Goodnight Moon,  Judy Blume, Beverly Cleary,  Lowis Lowry, Maya Angelou, Helen Steiner, Cynthia DeFelice,  and Shel Silverstein.  Although my husband is no longer with me to witness the birth of the books & writings I’ve worked on for years,  I appreciate the encouragement he continuously provided.  I’m truly blessed and humbled to be a  self-publishing author.
