Published stories of  the Birds in Peril Series

My autobiography published in 1993 by SoHo Press, the year of the 500 year flood.  I was asked to write about modern life on a modern farm from a modern woman's point of view.

meforiginals is a title I chose many years ago to label gifts or objects I created for others. 

Sometimes I am a crafter.  Sometimes I am a seamstress.  Most of the time I am a published author.  Well, I write after being a wife, a mom and a grandmother.  The purpose of this website is to  give anyone who visits here information about my books,
