I received a Master's Degree in English in 1968 from Northern Colorado University in Greeley, Colorado. I taught school for 34 years before retiring in 1996.
I am a native of Ada, Oklahoma, but moved to Colorado after graduating from EC in 1962. I have lived in Colorado and Kansas ever since. I have lived in Lawrence, KS, since 1971, where I taught English composition and literature at Haskell Indian Nations University.
