“The World through the Eyes of a Child” This book is about my adventures as an Army Brat. I moved all over as a child. First, we moved to Panama, and then to Fort Gordon Georgia. Then to Taiwan, we were one of the last American military families to live in Taipei so after 6 months we transferred   to Iwakuni, Japan for three years. After that I moved back to the States where I lived in Texas first in Magnolia and then at Fort Hood. After that we moved to St Lois, Mo. From there I went to San Diego, CA for a few months then it was off to Pusan, Korea. I lived there for a few years then came back to Magnolia TX for six months then to Lagrange TX. And finally back to San Diego, CA where I settled to raise my family. Hope you enjoy this journey as much as I did.

Announcing For the first time ever  the sequel in my memoirs trilogy

The Trenches of San Diego, The second book in my memoirs trilogy.BookCoverPreview (2)

I made a lot of mistakes in my young adult life.  I own up to all of them in this book. The names have been changed to protect the innocent and the guilty. Life was hard as a single mom in San Diego. But we survived I think because of my love for my children and my perseverance and determination to succeed.  This is the story of my struggle.
