Reinvention/Reincarnation. Those words describe Connie best. She has worked as a janitor,
a waitress, a mower of lawns and house cleaner, a clerk, secretary, teacher, bookseller
and (finally) an author. The last occupation is the best one, because she sees it as a labor
of love and therefore no labor at all.
Connie has lived in Oklahoma all her life, with brief forays into other states for visits.
She and her husband have been married for more years than she prefers to tell and together they have one son.
After earning an MFA in Film Production and Animation from the University of Oklahoma, Connie
taught courses in those subjects for a few years before taking a job as a manager for Borders. When she
left the company in 2007, she fully intended to find a desk job somewhere. She found the job. And the desk. At home, writing.
