STORIES, TRUE ADVENTURES OF TEXAS WOMEN ACROSS
THE CENTURIES AND THE LANDSCAPE OF TEXAS
As a young girl, no stories about women—outside the family—were available. That’s why it’s so important to me, and I’ve noticed many in audiences I speak to agree, to discover and recount stories of these women whose lives sparkle with contributions across the expanse of Texas. I’ve written the stories in Texas Ranch Women…and Texas Dames…now I get to tell their tales at organizations across the state, including what I consider my “home” writing organization, Western Writers of America. (For more, including a calendar of upcoming talks, click on “Storyteller” page.)
At Austin’s Pioneer Farms, invited by Dr. Rosemary Morrow (r) and Board President Mike Ward, I was honored to kick off the Farms’ “Sunday Socials.”
