My Bio

I am a devoted mother and wife. I also own and operate a horse training / boarding facility. I teach lessons to beginners, and am also involved in Equine Assisted Therapy.

I think that the little images in my mind have finally escaped, and they are on paper for the world to see. My mother wished for her genealogy to be recorded, and her family treasure to be in story form.
The characters, some real, and most imagined, have given to me a vivid depiction of what my family may have been like in the old days. Some of the other sneaky little characters have emerged into a series of childrens books, On The Farm.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
The writing of this book has been a journey for me, a healing, a mourning. I have found my Irish-Cherokee heritage in a very personal way, by bringing to life characters,and members of my family, whom I have never known.
My favorite lines from the book:
"The only things in life worth having, are those you must struggle to get."
Andrew Thomas Lyon

"Starting with nothing happened everyday out here. It was a way of life." chapter 14
