I grew up in a small town in Missouri. I served in the USAR for six years and worked in the banking industry for twenty two years. I changed my profession and became an entrepreneur owning a small business and then two years later, I began writing and published four books. Two of my books, MANipulated Into Fear and the sequel, White Roses In A Dream create awareness about domestic violence and the other two books are children's novels, Super Grandma and Super Grandpa, The Unknown Superheroes series, Book 1 & 2. I enjoy speaking, acting and modeling. My hobbies are learning to play the piano, exercising, walking, golfing and swimming.
