Department: Writer-in-Residence

What do you like most about working in the Cornette Library? A writer belongs in a library. We breathe best in library air. The thing I like best about Cornette Library is the wonderful people who work here. They are always ready and willing to help.

What is your favorite book(s)/author? I'd have to list a 100 and by the time I finished the list I'd think of another dozen or so!

What is your favorite local attraction? The Panhandle Plains Historical Museum. I found my plot for Widows of Wichita County while walking through the Oil & Gas section.

Rules to live by: Be hard on myself and easy on others.

You might be surprised to know that: I have no sense of direction and can't tell right from left. The good news - I never have that feeling of being lost ... you have to have been found first.
