Sally wrote her first book at age 14 and has been writing ever since. Through her travels and various vocations, she has drawn much grist for the writing mill.
Where has Sally been? What has she done?
To Alaska six times to visit her son, teach writing, and sell her books.
Over Idaho’s scary mountain shortcut to reach Oregon then Yellowstone.
To Medora, ND, home to Theodore Roosevelt National Park, where she taught memoir writing.
To East Texas bayou country where humid weather brought on asthma attacks. She doesn’t even have asthma!
Sally has been a journalist, parish worker, ad copy writer, secretary, and quilt shop owner. She climbed a water tower, walked behind Minnehaha Falls, and canoed through a Class III rapids. She has taught quilting, writing, journaling, and Bible classes.
Her goals for the next 83 years? To honor her Savior, Jesus Christ, through more
writing: a second memoir titled Dear God, What Have I Done?; another series for kids
about Sasquatch; more devotionals.
Many more places and experiences have honed Sally’s curious nature, her love for weaving words into stories, and her appreciation for God’s creation. Her writing genes spring from teachers, farmers, poets and novelists.
