Location Mississippi-born—a Texan since 1969—
Introduction I'm a writer, wife, mother, grandmother, author, daughter, sister, identical twin, believer, friend, and not necessarily in that order. I studied Magazine Journalism and Feature Writing at Rice University, and, with God's help, have authored three books and contributed to more than 20 other works. My work has appeared in a host of publications, including MISSISSIPPI Magazine, GUIDEPOSTS and FOCUS ON THE FAMILY, as well as THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS, (where I was a special contributor from 1999-2008), the HOUSTON CHRONICLE, and the BEAUMONT ENTERPRISE. I've been humbled and honored to receive two Amy Writing Awards. One in 2001 for my work in THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS, and one in 2012 for my work in the BEAUMONT ENTERPRISE. I write to encourage, to inspire, to change, to motivate, to reach across the miles and touch a reader's life in some small way. It is a privilege.
