Writing a bio for San Gabriel Writer’s League is like writing a bio for your family—for indeed, members of SGWL are and have been my family for more than a decade.
I am a fifth generation Texan, with roots growing deep in the swamps and bayous of Southeast Texas. I author the Sidra Smart mysteries, with four books in the series published to date, along with a small cookbook. The fifth of the series is in first draft. I also authored a historical fiction set during WWII homefront, and have recently released Original Cyn, a departure for me into the world of contemporary fiction.
My husband Bill and I moved to Hot Springs, Arkansas three years ago and loved the city and her people, but found a dearth of organized writing organizations. One trip to the public library and soon we founded the Garland County Library Writers College. I was the lone teacher this time, and taught two-hour monthly writing classes. The classes were well received and extremely well attended. We are happy to be back in Georgetown, and I am particularly excited to be an active participant of SGWL.
