My Family – I’ve been married for a long, long time to a very special man who happens to be my best friend. Robert “Bob” Owens has appeared in most of my books, in one form or another. His character usually provides the humor, but sometimes the romance. We have three grown sons, a couple of lovely daughters-in-law. We are blessed with five beautiful granddaughters and two handsome grandsons. We all live in the Kentuckiana region, aka the Ohio Valley, known for its warmth and humidity, but we love it.

Thank you for stopping by my website/blog. I am available for speaking engagements on a variety of subjects. If you have a book club, writers’ group, ladies group, or church group, send me a message via the “Contact Me” tab.
