I began a second career as the Family Health Reporter at the NBC affiliate in Houston. I was also taking serious creative writing courses and traveling the world with my daughter. Then the wheels came off the bus.
Actually, the on board computer failed. I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus (the ugly stepsister of Rheumatoid Arthritis) and my doctor took me away from work. Stress makes lupus worse and my jobs blew the lid off the stress meter. I thought I'd return one day, but that day never came. I lived in the half-lit world of the chronically ill.
At the tender age of 54, I met and married the man of my dreams. Why he'd take on a woman who slept 14 hours a day was beyond me, but he did and we are very happy.
I learned in my teens that a good book beat a bad date and have always been a writer. I've had numerous op-ed pieces published, but this trilogy is my first foray into the novel.
You can learn more about my trilogy about a lady who accidentally became a senator and then president of the United States at my website www.theaccidentalpresident.com.
I do hope you enjoy my characters and the pickles they get themselves into -- and usually out of. They have a habit of going off on their own and I have to find a way back for them. Characters behave like two-year olds sometimes.
