Rooted in Our Words – Reaching for Understanding
I was born and raised in rural Illinois. Much of my writing lingers through the four seasons and county of Pike. I settled in Tucson, AZ in the mid 1980’s where I established roots of a new home. Both cultures intermingle with delight. Many adventures and escapades now gone by, I write about those along with many other loves of life. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Born in Nebraska and raised on a farm, I currently live in the front range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, along with my husband of fifty years and our nine-year-old dog, Rusty. I am thankful to have three children, four grandchildren and three granddogs. My children jokingly claim I love my dogs more than them. After years of writing, I finally organized my journals and added them to an overloaded bookshelf of my favorite books. I wrote a memoir of my childhood growing up on a farm in the midwest. It is currently being edited and I hope to publish it by the first of 2023. The name of the memoir is The Shade of Black Walnut Trees. You can contact me by email at email@example.com
I have made my way through this life in a most conventional way. I was uprooted as a teen from Kansas and lived most of my adult years in the Pacific Northwest. Now I live with my husband and three cats in the resort atmosphere of Oro Valley, Arizona. I am married to Ken 58 years, have three remarkable adult children, and one amazing grandson. I write daily for my own pleasure and enlightenment. I love travel; and, Ken and I enjoy road trips exploring our great country, visiting friends and family everywhere.
