Her third novel 'Under Siege on the Rockin' A' can be found on either paperback or kindle. This novel is an irresistible tale of romance through history, Apache beliefs, and events taken from today?s headlines. Readers will be enthralled from the first page to the last.

My boys:
Number one is retired Army
Number two is a chef and owns his own company
Number three an engineer at Barnes Jewish Children's Hospital in St. Louis
Number four is a high school math teacher

My husband and I aging more each day

To round out our family there are two cats that let their wishes known
One small Dachshund, Harley, keeps us shaking our heads at his antics

Success is hanging on after others have let go.

    ulster3: People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; Forgive them anyway.
    If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.
    If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; Succeed anyway.
    If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; Be honest and frank anyway.
    What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; Build anyway.
    If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous; Be happy anyway.
    The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.
    Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway.
