Who Has Been the Most Influential Person in Your Life:
How do you answer something like this? My life’s not over. It’s a timeline answer... First both my parents, who adopted me when I was four days old and never considered me anything but theirs. (That's my dad to the left. You can't tell by the picture, but he's wrapped around my little finger) Then, it was my high school best friend Patty McCoy who explored with me, cried with me, got in trouble with me, and is forever the friend of my heart. As a young adult, it was fellow teacher and mentor Elizabeth Weed. In the writing world, it's best friend Harlequin American author Cathy McDavid (There we are, at a booksigning, all blurry to the right). Now it is my husband Donald Osback (standing next to me below) and my son, who both teach me patience and that love is glue with occasional bubbles. And throughout time, Jesus.

What is Your Favorite Bible Verse: Matthew 2:28 “A voice is hear in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted because they are no more.” This verse has always spoken to me because it showed me how much emotion could be taken down to just one sentence. One sentence. Wow
