Born in Texas, I was whisked away to San Diego, Ca as a baby, where I grew up near the ocean. Even though I now live inland, I still love the smell and sounds of the sea. Following my husband's career I have lived in many states with our five children in tow. I wear many hats in my life but children have always been my focus. I have volunteered as a 4H leader and classroom aide. As a former owner and operator of Whalens' Country Childcare I draw on my experiences for my passion of writing for children. I hold dear the awe and wonder seen in the eyes of a child and hope I will forever be inspired by the sight. I have also appeared in newspapers, magazines, and as a guest on Bob Dunnings syndicated talk show for my adult inspirational book The Valley of Childhood.
