I am married with five grown children and seven grandchildren. I am a retired social worker with over twenty years experience working with the public and social programs. My many years of social work have been an inspiration for developing characters for my stories. It is a fact of life that everyone is different and thank God for it. As we look around us I believe there is a story within every shadow and a link to life's experiences within everyone we meet. It seemed only natural for me to write about families and I hope that you enjoy the family I have created for my 'Rose' series. Take a moment to look around you and listen. You will find your story to tell and you will enjoy what you have found as I have.
