On my way to Africa


Yesterday the itinerary came across the Internet, so it looks like I’m actually on my way back to South Africa!  I lived there thirty five years ago– so  much has changed.  In those days I couldn’t eat in a restaurant with an African friend, invite one to my home for dinner, or stay in the same hotel.   You can read more about how Apartheid devastated not only black South Africans but whites,  in my novel The Soweto Legacy. (See under About Books) I plan to keep you posted on this journey after so many years — my preparations, expectations and  challenges .

My husband and I spent 22 years working with African young people in South Africa under Apartheid, which deepened my passion for the disenfranchised. During regular returns to the US I earned my MA in Communications at Wheaton Graduate School. Later I became head of publications for Partners International and edited a quarterly magazine. In the 90's I directed the AD2000 Women's Track networking with thousands of international women leaders in Christian ministry. I have written/published twelve books on missions, biography, fiction, most recently two biographical novels about Dr. Katharine Bushnell, nineteenth century crusader against what is known today as trafficking. Daughters of Deliverance and The Queen's Daughters are available in Kindle as well as print on Amazon. I was married to Allen, now deceased, my lifelong sweetheart. We had four sons,( one deceased,) one daughter, and 18 grandchildren. How can I help but praise God for the full life He's given me, and the opportunities even in my senior years, to live purposefully.
