I am a retired English teacher and current independently-published author. I write in a variety of genres including suspense, science fiction, fantasy, and post-apocalyptic fiction. I also have published one Christian fiction book. One of my books, "Alien Cats," is very special to me because in addition to being a fun story, it is like a memorial for some of my cats that I loved dearly and lost to old age and illness. I named characters after them and pictured a couple of them on the front cover. In addition to enjoying writing and spending time with my current cat, I also enjoy nature walks, movies, and hanging out with friends.
