I would like to take this time to dedicate A Author's Biography to my parents, Henry, and Glenda Andrews- Let's face it, they did all the hard work in raising me, and I wouldn't be the person I have become without their love and support through out my life. Thanks mom and dad! I love y'all!

I also want to dedicate this book to my husband, Vernon Andrew Watkins- for being my rock for so many wonderful years! I love you so much my dear husband!

As a child I often used my vivid imagination...

Whether I was making up stories just to tell, by the camp-fires with friends, or jotting them down in a notebook... My first dream was to become a artist, my second was to become a published author, and my third dream.... don't laugh!!!! It was to hopefully become a millionaire!!! Lol!!!! Well, we all have heard that old saying about the "Starving artist!" It was my compressed thoughts that wowed me!!! I mean think about it!!! If I won the lottery... Well, it would be, just like the words to a favorite ole song of mine, by the rock group Meatloaf; "Two Outta Three Ain't Bad! Okay folks, so I am a jokester! But think about it!!! I could then set back, at my desk, write, draw, paint. Never having a care of the OMG moments.... Y'all know the one's I'm referring to!!! The bills!

I still do a lot of my own artwork, and often I do include it into my works. It's always been important to me, to never give up on anything, unless of course it's just causing plain pain, and misery.

As you'll find out I'm extremely different in various ways, than most are... Lol... I'm confident when I say, I'm sure this is the first biography of its kind! Because??? Well, that's how I wanted it to be! Let's face it, I'm not the uptight, stuffy type perfessional. I could never live with myself if I was. Lol!!!

My biography isn't going to be over a thousand pages long! How bored I would be, before ever getting to page 100. Yeppers, you guessed it right!!!! I'm not a person who is self centered. I am a author only because I chose to be, I write for the pure joy of it.... nothing really fancy, just good, wholesome, clean, and entertaining... fun...Hopefully along the way, I'll peak your interest enough that you too will enjoy my work.

Wishing God's Speed to you all!
