I’ve been writing fiction so many years I can hardly remember when I began. Most likely it began in my childhood with my overactive imagination and really took off years later when my husband and I moved with our three sons to our little lakeside cabin during our summer breaks. There I began writing in earnest. He Planted a Garden is my sixth novel and my first published work. I queried Highland Press Publishing in August of 2014 about another of my books. However, when I told the publisher I’d also written a Christian novel, she asked me to send it to her, as they had recently introduced their inspirational line of novels. Not long after that I signed a contract with Highland Press, and around five months later He Planted a Garden was released under their Grace imprint. I believe it was God’s perfect timing.
Besides raising our three wonderful sons, I’ve been a public school teacher, a business woman, a volunteer, an active church member and a student of the Bible. But most remarkable perhaps is that my husband and I have been married for over half a century and we’re still in love. We are the grandparents of four absolutely delightful adult grandchildren.
My husband and I grew up, and lived most of our lives in Alabama, not far from the banks of the Chattahoochee River and a little over an hour from Atlanta’s city limits, but we’ve resided in the Sandhills of North Carolina for the past nineteen years.
