About Me

My photo
I am a mother, a teacher, and a nature lover. I grew up on a mountain we called Owls' Knob in the Ozarks of Arkansas. The first seven years of my life were spent living in a log cabin, far from a store or streetlight, without electricity or running water and after twenty years of travel, I returned to the abondoned homestead. Now I live on a hill by a small lake and work at a public garden. These are stories about nature written from a women deeply influenced by place.

Women in Nature: An Anthology

The book "Women in Nature" is an anthology filled with nonfictional short stories by women from all over the United States. I am one of those women and my story "Felling a Friend" is in this book! If you would like to purchase a book you can do so on Amazon or by following this link:


  1. I, also have a story in "Women in Nature." I received my books and I am enjoying reading the stories of women who love nature as I do. I hope this publisher will be successful. I loved your story about the big red oak.

  2. Fantastic! I have been wanting to connect with other women in this book and you are the first! My book arrived just yesterday and I have been too busy to read much yet but I will. Which story is yours?

  3. Nevermind Mary, I found it :-) What a lovely little story about wilflife friends! And we are both in Arkansas! How great!
