In 1999, she submitted a short piece to a publisher titled “Message of the Rose”. Although it was not accepted for publication she received a thoughtful letter from the Editor. She paid heed to his salutation “Gentle Writer” and the words that followed. He was correct with regard to the road being long, nonetheless Gentle Writer was not discouraged. She loved developing and writing all of her mystical fiction books that had been flowing through her since 1979. She wrote Galaxy 313: Book One between 1979 and 1983. The publishers passed it by. She took a deep breath and continued writing six more books in the series. Galaxy 313 is now a reality, and the subsequent books are in line for final editing.
