Born in Kansas, now living in Colorado where I published a weekly newspaper for 27 years. Don't let the term publisher fool you. In a small weekly that means business manager, reporter, photographer, editorial writer and janitor if the need arises. As a reporter I covered local government, law enforcement, high school sports, as well as writing feature articles on people. I am proud to say the walls of my newspaper office are filled with the many awards won by my staff, myself included. I am now working on writing a novel and post on my blog slated at living and cooking as a single person. I have two grown step children, four grandchildren and a great-grandson on the way.
