About the author (2011)

I grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee, home of Chickamauga Battlefield, Rock City, Ruby Falls, and the beautiful Tennessee Aquarium. After graduating from high school in 1973, I headed to southwestern Virginia for undergrad. My alma mater, Emory and Henry College, is a small liberal arts institution that enjoys an excellent reputation for quality academics and affordability.

Between my sophomore and junior years, I married my high school sweetheart. We graduated together in 1977. I later earned a Masters in Reading and Story Arts from East Tennessee State University.

For 15 years I taught kindergarten and second grade near Knoxville, TN, in the foothills of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. In the fall of 2002, I left the classroom to write full-time.
