About the Author

I'm a born and country-bred East Texan. Though I grew up with meager means, my loving parents made sure I had everything I needed. However, they balked at my wheedling to get "things" just because my friends had new clothes and gadgets. Mother taught me domestic skills such as sewing, cooking, gardening, and ironing (ugh!), and keeping a very clean house; and Dad taught me fishing, camping, hunting, and such, which we thoroughly enoyed as a family (with the exception of my sister, for she was such a little lady that dirt disgusted her to no end!). As a family, we also played the games 42 and Dominos.

At a very young age I discovered talking in rhyme, so much so that I used this gift to irritate my motherly sister. As a child I had no brothers to play with, so when I was thirteen I discovered BOYS! I was married at the tender age of sixteen, became the mother of a beautiful daughter at eighteen, and as time passed we also had two handsome sons. Our family has also been blessed with two loving granddaughters and four great-granddaughters!

I didn't know Jesus as my Lord and Savior until I was almost thirty. He is the Light in my life and many times He has allowed me to witness to and council with some very hurting people. As a form of release for me, I would write poems about their sad lives-sometimes using objects or animals so as not to use their names!

Our children's dad, (E.J. McGee) died in 2001 at the young age of 65. In 2005 I married my hero, Cecil, a true servant of God and a World War II survivor of Iwo Jima. Cecil lost both legs at the age of 20 and lived 63 more years with the use of a wheelchair. Sadly we only had two and a half wonderful years before the Lord called him to his heavenly home!

Currently, I use my musical gifts of singing and playing a 12-string guitar to entertain in and around our area.
