of 21 years in Statesboro, Georgia. We have three sons Andrew, Jonathon, and Dane, a daughter-in-law Krystal, and our precious
I had almost reached the half-century mark before I began
writing. When Thirty-One Years and a Stumble was published by Xlibris, I thought that was a one-time event
and was grateful to God for the opportunity to share my testimony with people across the country. But God
had more in store for me in this area of my life and has given me more opportunities. I've had stories published
in magazines and short story anthologies, including God Allows U-Turns: American Moments, 2TheHeart: People Who Make a
Difference, Women Alive Magazine, The New Pentecostal Evangel, and various church publications.
My second book was published by PublishAmerica of Baltimore,
Maryland. It's a collaboration with my siblings entitled Musings, Meditations, and Memories of One Slightly Dysfunctional
American Family by The Harper Kids.
My third book is entitled Letters to Kate. The letters include personal memories, ideals
which I want to pass on to Kate, and anecdotes about our time together during her first year of life. It is packed with
pictures and was written especially as a keepsake for my precious granddaughter Kate.
Writing and having my stories published is a late-in-life dream

One of my interests is GENEALOGY.
I have compiled a genealogy book for my family.
My family website includes information on several
branches including HARPER, YOUNGER, TAYLOR, KEELING, ROSS, and ROBY, among
others - going back centuries on some of the branches.
