About Me

I am a Christian who loves God and loves discovering my relationship with Him. I am a mother of a grown son and daughter. I am the daughter of  my mom and dad who have been a great example for me. I am a sister to a younger brother and sister.  I am a mother-in-law and a grandmother to four.

In March, 2017 my dad died at 81 years old. I'm so blessed to have known him for so long. 

I work as a School Based Social Worker and the homeless youth liaison. Other jobs I've worked throughout my life: Newspaper Proofreader, Database Tech (I'm a total nerd), Secretary, and Bank Teller. I learned so much in each job. So much.

I am a writer, but not published much. In the 1980s, I had a few children's stories published. I write every day, mostly short stories. I have self-published a small collection of short stories (mostly weird) call Grim Tales from the Ruralhood. 

I write on two blogs, JW and The Ruralhood. 

I am a DIY girl and know how to use "some" power tools. I love white paint. 

Thanks for stopping by to get to know me better.
