STORIES, TRUE ADVENTURES OF TEXAS WOMEN ACROSS
THE CENTURIES AND THE LANDSCAPE OF TEXAS

STORYTELLING… Now I get to tell the women’s stories to women’s groups, Texas history groups, library and archive audiences as well as teachers, students, Sunday school classes, business, professional and civic groups. (for more see “storyteller PAGE)

EDITING… I edit as I like to be edited: with respect for the story that’s unfolding and the author’s voice that drives it. I’ll suggest scene changes, if warranted; check out the story population…I’ll question if all characters have a role; I’ll hone words and syntax only to streamline the story and increase tension and suspense.
After editing the start of one person’s novel, K. L. of Dallas said: “Carmen, this is great stuff.”
