About Me. I am a Christian woman who loves the Lord. I am an also an author, blogger, and speaker. I was born in the
Bronx, NY, third of five children to Patrick Doyle, a Daily
News Crime Reporter, and his wife Frances. We moved to Dumont, NJ
when I was three. We moved once again when I was 11 to Haworth, NJ.
I moved to Central Texas in 1977, and returned to New Jersey until October
1980, when I returned to Copperas Cove, TX, where I married my husband, Tucker.
My husband was a career Army man. We had our daughter, Mary, in 1982. We lived
in Germany from 1983-1986, and returned to Killeen, and Fort Hood, TX to retire
from the service. I worked at Fort Hood for over 23 years as a
secretary, then technical writer, and finally as an editor for a
government contractor. I retired from contracting and now work full time as an
author, occasional speaker, and wife. We have lived in Salado, TX for over 18
I had a dream to write when I was a little girl, but as I grew up, life
happened, and the dream slowly died away. It was rekindled about seven
years ago when my husband started to pray that I would start writing again.
I admonished him at first, the desire to put pen to pad was no longer
there. It was his dream now, not mine. But he kept on praying,
every morning at 5:30 as we walked our dog. Finally, I saw that the gift God
had given me was to write, and the desire and enthusiasm for it was soon
rekindled. It just goes to show the power of prayer works!
My blogs can be found at Thoughts and Prayers. I have not been as diligent
with writing them as I once was, but I hope to get much more involved very
