I grew up in the Oklahoma Dust Bowl during the Great Depression and left my family’s tenant farm after high school. I moved to Oklahoma City where I worked as a genuine Rosie the Riveter in a local defense plant. There, I met my future husband, Robert, a soldier. When the war ended, my husband and I moved to western Wisconsin where I modeled professionally, earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees, then taught high school English for twenty-one years. At my retirement, I moved to St. Paul, Minnesota, where I still live today with my equally ancient husband. The Dirty Days is my debut novel at the age of 86.
I post on WordPress once a month on or around the 15th. My postings are usually stories/musings about my growing up in the 1930s. I hope you enjoy!
