         Like the Giant Himalayan Lily

(Massive white-and-purple trumpet-shaped flowers appear from the 10-foot-tall plant after about seven years. When not in bloom, the lily, which grows in the Himalayas, is a mass of glossy green leaves. The parent plant dies after flowering but leaves behind several smaller bulbs.)


I identify with this late-blooming plant.

About the Author

A Little Info

Following my lifelong dream to write and publish - fiction, mostly - has been a long time coming. Not being superwoman, I kept putting off real devotion to this craft as I raised kids, worked as an addiction case manager, and helped my husband in the churches he pastored.


I now live in southeastern Kansas with my husband of 45 years and a mob of interested, furry onlookers. I recently retired from case management and am enjoying this new season to write. I published many poems as a teenager, and a short story, Raindance, appeared in Grit Magazine in 1998. I was awarded an honorable mention from the Ellsworth Area Arts Council in 2013 for a memoir piece, At The End of the Street.


My short story, The Archer's Ball, will appear online at grandedameliterary.com as of 7/11/22.


Now is the time for me to write. As I offer these short stories and novels to the world - my only hope is to bring some light and entertainment to those walking down the road with me here on Planet Earth.  Hope you enjoy!
