I enjoy every aspect of the screenwriting/film industry. I am a screenplay writer. I have finished three specs and I'm a published author/speaker. I love researching for my work and am a retired teacher. I have been blessed to have lived many places because I'm married to a retired military man and am currently in Tennessee.
I have many hobbies which include learning new things, golf, horses, gardening, and all animals including cats and dogs. I enjoy two children and five grandchildren. I love being with people and my work. My background includes learning much under Ted Baehr and his wonderful class in Southern CA.
I belong to several writing groups and enjoy the interaction with people of like mind. I love the entire production of a film from beginning to The End. :) It's fun to do and to observe, we are never too old to learn new things, ideas, and concepts.
Unique traits: I am a Screenplay writer/ author, speaker who loves to encourage people.
