About the Author
A small log house was my first home in Taylorsville, Mississippi. My parents were farmers, but when the crop failed, we moved to Mobile, Alabama, where my dad worked as a millwright with International Paper Company. I have been truly blessed in my life by a mother who spent hours reading and singing to me. She instilled the love of poetry into my soul. In addition to my love of poetry, I consider many of my poems to be God-given because He wakes me up in the middle of the night with poems and songs. My husband, Wiley, also encourages me to enter poems into contests. The poetry I have written has much variety and style. Many of the poems I write come from heartfelt memories and reflections of the best that came out of my life.
