About the Writer

After 27 wonderful years of teaching and being the managing director of a summer stock

At John O’Groats, Scotland

theatre, I remarried and moved from my little hometown of Wellsburg, West Virginia to San Jose, California then to Memphis, Tennessee, and finally to Little Rock, Arkansas.

With no papers to grade and no plays to direct, I had lots of time to spend with the three boys of our blended family.  I learned to love cooking and golfing, and my husband Richard and I have been able to do a lot of traveling.  For seven years I pastored a church, and now I write for Life in Chenal, a local magazine.

It’s been quite an adventure. –Shari Coote
