A hopeless romantic, Priscilla has spent the best forty-three years of her life married to her hero, Russell. While raising their two children, she put aside her dream of writing. Yet through those years, characters, plots, and dialogue filled her nightly dreams. She promised herself that someday she would transfer those images to paper, breath life into them, and let their stories unfolded. When the fourth grandchild arrived she knew her someday had arrived. Since that momentous day she has written three manuscripts and is currently working on the fourth.
Born and raised in Atoka County, Oklahoma instilled a love for its rich history in her. It is no accident that this area provides the setting for her historians. She lives near Ten Mile Creek in the foothills of the Kiamichi Mountains. Both the Texas Military Road and the Butterfield Stage route run through the area. She has trekked the wilds of Boogaboo Canyon, walked in the past surrounded by the whispered voices of Captain Atoka and Eliza Flack. She has also visited with moon shiners, and the now-abandoned sites of their stills. This first-hand knowledge allows her to deliver a strong, distinctive sense of place, giving readers a unique view of this region and its history.
She is an active member of Women Writing the West, Romance Writers of America, EPIC, EPPRO, EQUILD, Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc, McSherry's McWriters and a graduate of Writer's Digest School. One of her short stories, To Hell and Back, was published in a collection of works by native writers, funded by the Lannan Foundation, for the Chickasaw National Library. She has published in Trends for Victims, a victim services newsletter, Better Homes and Gardens, EPIC Journey, Calico Trails, Women Writing the West, and ReadTheWest.com.
