Location Mississippi-born—a Texan since 1969—
Introduction I'm a writer, author, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, identical twin, believer in Jesus Christ, friend, musician, 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 (for complete list click on "Meet Dayle"), including DESOTO Magazine, THE TENNESSEAN, MISSISSIPPI Magazine, GUIDEPOSTS, FOCUS ON THE FAMILY, as well as THE DALLAS MORNING NEWS, where I was a special contributor from 1999-2008. I've been 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.
