I have always wanted to write a story, though I never had the time. I am a retired public health nurse with many experiences growing up in which to draw from. I now live in southwest Florida, having moved from Maryland, where we lived for forty years. Prior to that, I was raised on a working dairy farm in a large family in Delaware. My husband, Dick, and I have reared four children, now all married, who live in various parts of the country and have accumulated nine grandchildren. My hobbies include reading, golf, traveling, and grandkids. This is my first attempt to put this story on paper, though I have had it in my head for two years.
