I was raised on a farm in oppressive poverty, but I was happy because I didn't know any better. My profession is now in the healthcare field where caring for the sick is a purpose I cherish. I believe the most glorious human achievement is victory over adversity, the essence of divinity. I believe that life is precious, our past mysterious, and our future is glorious. My writings include Mystic Waters, Legend of the Wabash, The Legend Prayer, and The Benefactor, a 93,000-word contemporary general audience novel. I anticipate publishing a second novel, Return to the Seven Houses in the near future.
