I wanted to tell you about our new gospel Cd, and forgot. There are maybe two cover songs on there the rest are originals one of which I wrote called Mama, the others are songs from several of our songwriting friends out of Nashville, and one gal out of San Diego, Denise Ganulin a great songwriter.
Billy Arr my dear friend of whom has had 88 of his songs recorded by people like Loretta, Mel Tillis, Gene Watson, Faron Young and the list goes on. Elwood Walker close friend of both mine and Mel as well as Wade Jackson. I believe in helping folks in this industry the way the old timers use to do, not the case today. Johnnie Branham, Mel and I are also going to be working on a project as well. We are hoping to take him with us to Midwest Country to play some lead for us. WE are staying busy. Trying to line up a booking agency now, have a lot going on getting busy.

From the screen to health care
I sat alongside Rapunzel as she draped her gorgeous hair down the side of a tower. I shared a box car with other children. I've zoomed to faraway planets, lived as an alligator, a wise wizard, a fairy godmother, and a private eye. Books have always been my portal to adventures. My career journey has taken me from a teacher to a principal, to a college instructor, and into retirement as a writer. With 38 exciting years in education, I've gathered many ideas for creating children's manuscripts. I look forward to sharing them with my readers. My dream is to hear a child say, "Read it again!" and know they're pleading for one of my books.
