I have been writing since my early twenties about life in general and short stories. I always enjoyed writing and kept my writings in journals because I knew one day I would want them published to leave for my family and hopefully inspire others to fulfill their dreams. I grew up in the open farmlands in the early 1950's and enjoyed playing in the open fields and barnyards with other children. We all knew each other's families and were quite close. As of today we still keep see and contact with each other. I also bunched in the fields with my family and extended families. Some family members worked the farmland. When I graduated from high school, I pursued higher education and received my BA and Master's Degree, I'm currently still am licensed by the California State of Behavioral Science in Educational Psychologist. My career was with the Los Angeles School District. My last assignment was a High School Principal at a Continuation High School. I'm married and have 5 children and currently 5 grandchildren and another on the way. Since retiring my husband I have begun traveling, we enjoyed visiting cultural sites and old historical towns to learn about our past history I have also taken up Photography and enjoyed taking pictures of the beautiful and wonderful scenery we come in contact with. I hope o put these pictures in my book as well for others to enjoy.
