Every now and then there are people we meet who change the trajectory of our lives in the most unexpected but eternally astounding ways.
Terry McGregor was that person for me.
There were others, of course. The poet George Venn who first declared me a real writer. Patsy Ward, that beautiful young woman who helped me find my way to Jesus, after years of abandonment. Judge Rufe McCombs who asked me to write her memoir. Marc Jolley who agreed to publish my first book and is still publishing my books. I could probably spend all day writing about the people who have shaped me into the woman I am.
