About Me

I grew up in Kansas, one of six children.  After college, I pursued my library career in Ohio, Maryland, Australia and Texas.  From children’s librarian to reference librarian to library director, I loved it.  Now I’m enjoying retirement and having time to write and also pursue photography.  I’ve started combining the two interests by self-publishing books on Blurb.com.  Having lots of fun!

    Interview request: Hi, I’m a freelance reporter working on an article about how parents can create a memorable holiday, even in tough times, with homemade Christmases. The article is for The Christian Science Monitor newspaper (csmonitor.com). I saw your write-up of how to recreate a Little House on the Prairie Christmas, thought it was a terrific idea, and hoped I could talk with you further. I can be contacted at the above e-mail. Thanks very much for your time.

    just got your comment on my book on blurb. i think because i literally just uploaded it on friday, the preview isn’t yet available. i had set it up to have preview mode.

    will let you know when that functionality is in place. sounds like we have a lot in common – i too am a trained librarian now COO of a museum in Los Angeles and thank god am finally finished with the second blurb book – whew. now on to other projects.
    give me a shout via email… Luke

    I recently sold my dance business in Portland, OR and moved to Albuquerque, NM to be with be with my fiance’. Leaving my family and friends, I am truly starting over and am looking for some guidance in the online business with eHow and Amazon. I noticed you are are quite familiar with both.

    May I share some thoughts, ideas, and questions with you regarding connecting with my national dance community through online sales on eHow and Amazon?

    Hi Virginia, Thanks for pointint me to your mom’s book. I will try to get that. Would be a nice addition to my research books on the Flint Hills. Hope the book signing in El Dorado went well! Blessings to you both.

    I read your eHow article on selling antique diaries and was wondering something. Where would be the best place to FIND a victorian diary from maybe 1860-1899 that would be blank? I am creating a character for a Victorian Magic show and am building a life that can be shared through storytelling and photos and a diary.

    However, I am having trouble finding a nice diary from that period that is blank and could be used to complete myself using sources from different sources.

    Thanks for any help!!

    Hi Virginia,
    I am new to wordpress and just found your blog, looks like a good read to me so far!
    It looks like you have some good information here, and have “pushed” out into the webs in different directions (lens,blurb,zazzle,etc).
    ps – i hope the checkbox below subscribes me to your blog!
