A little about me, and some of the things I cherish

I'm interested in so many things that in college I found it impossible to settle on one subject. Gardening, hiking in the foothills, and the desert (when it's cool) and traveling.

I enjoy my family and friends, oil painting, fossils -- which reminds me of a story I've started writing inspired by "dinosaur beach" -- and dinosaur tracks. A thirty inch long dinosaur footprint touching your toes can change your life! 

Texas is home to me as it was to some of my ancestors -- men who were farmers, ranchers, judges, lawmen, -- women who would rather be outside riding their horses than inside cooking, who learned to speak the language of the Lipan Apache, stopped hangings, and raised children.  

I love writing stories set in the Southwest about heros and heroines, the problems they overcome, their fears and triumphs and the forever love they can't deny.

Through my writing I've attended writing workshops and conventions which totally inspired and energized me. I've met writers online and in person who are some the most generous people I know. It must have something to do with romance stories and happily ever after :-)

Favorite recipes:

Easy Chile con Queso
Mix together in a 2 quart pot, 1 lb. velveeta cheese, and one 10 oz. can Ro Tel Mexican Festival (contains diced tomatoes, lime juice and cilantro) one 4 oz. can peeled and diced green chiles. Heat the mixture on low until the cheese melts. Stir often to avoid burning the cheese. Serve with your favorite tostadas and beverage of your choice.
