Olivia is a legally blind wife/mother, married over 25 years to hubby Jim. Their son James will be a Sophomore in college. She began writing in high school, hoping to pen the “great American love story.” She continued writing as a hobby , but in the 80s she acquired a second BA from Cal State Bakersfield in Fine Arts, concentrating in vocal music and English, a double major. It became dormant for over two decades until she devoured every taped book in her church library. Rekindling her love for writing, she started penning her book after coming home with her guide dog Fenway. They’ve been together seven years this month. She now says she was born to write, as today’s her birthday, her age being secret. She’s a contributor of My Journey of Faith.com, where she writes daily devotions, and articles for their on-line publications. She’s been with them a year. She has also written for Pawtracks, GDUI’s quarterly magazine, and The Blind Californian, CCB’s quarterly offering.
Olivia will give a brief presentation and then take questions from our participants. We look forward to hearing from all of you on Monday night.
