Retiring in 2010, she founded a writer’s group. I felt I needed to get back into writing, which is my passion, as is helping others. I had been going to a writers group out of town but needed one in my own town. So at the suggestion of the founder of the out-of-town writer's group, I formed a writers group in March of 2010 in Collierville, Tn called Collierville Christian Writers Group. I thought maybe six or seven people might come, never dreamed twenty-three would. The writing group was going strong until the pandemic hit; March 2020 was our last meeting.
As is often the case, after I started the writers group, God added something that complimented my writing and experience. I felt a tug in my heart, but wasn't sure what He wanted. A dear friend, who was also one of my pastors, prayed with me and for me during this period of time. Through much prayer God's leading became clear. God was leading me to start a magazine for authors. This would be a great way to help authors going forward. It began in March 2011, and debuted July 2011. We published six issues a year, showcasing authors and their books nationally until May 2020. I retired the magazine but through Suite T, the author's blog I continue to showcase author's and their books. So far we have had over 3.8 million views.
The pastor has since gone home to be with the Lord but he saw the magazine come into being. Always faithful to pray for the magazine and the work. He also wrote the foreword for my first book, Storms in Life.
Now that I am no longer on deadlines with the magazine, God has led me to write the words He has given me through the years.
My second book, God's Prayer Power (a book of prayers and how to be more specific in our prayer life) was released in June 2020. And my third book, Between Me and You: God's Way Is Better was released March 2021. A book that can help us have peace in our lives, which we all need after the year of the pandemic.
My husband and I live in Tennessee. We have four daughters who are grown with families of their own. He golfs and I write. It works out perfectly!
