“Write what should not be forgotten.” Isabel Allende, a Chilean novelist.

I have memories that have instructed me, that bring me a smile or a laugh when they come to mind, and that should not be forgotten. Despite the many edits of my three books of memoir, I still enjoy occasionally rereading them. They are who I am.

I want my spouse, our offspring, and our friends to appreciate my good times, my life’s lessons, and how God has blessed our family with hope and direction.

It’s good to know through my writing that others can be engaged and entertained by the thoughts and stories I express. Thank you for listening.
