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.

PROGRAM begins at 7:00 pm on the second floor of the

    Oops. You fixed the displayed link, but didn’t change the link to part. You can test it by linking on each one. I did a refresh of my browser and still got the wrong links. These math problems are harder than they should be. This one is okay seven x — = 7, but the last one was — x 8 = 24. I had to count on my fingers.

    I would like to have a contact at the SGWL to receive publicity about the Hill Country Authors Series speakers. Our next speaker is Chris Tomlinson, author of Tomlinson Hill. He will be speaking at the Library on Feb. 20 at 2:00 p.m. I’d like to send you a press release, poster, etc., to have for your Feb. meeting.
