Teaching is a wonderful experience
Translating decades of experience in writing and publishing, Carmen passes along her knowledge to writers through small group Writers’ Circles, individually, classes, conferences and workshops. For 12 years, men and women have knocked on the door of her writing place, her home, “Scribblers Sanctuary,” as nicknamed by early students. Some of her SMU and TCU students still come back from time to time for a “refresher” or a manuscript edit.
Autographed Books make a great gift!
“You find the untold stories of so many women…women who’ve been lost from the pages of history, and you write them well.”Ann Smith of the Houston-Galveston Sam Houston Chapter of DAR about Texas Dames: Sassy and Savvy Women throughout Lone Star History

ONE READER SAID about TEXAS RANCH WOMEN: THREE CENTURIES OF METTLE AND MOXIE…
…“well written and informative. I was born and raised in Texas. We had Texas history in school. This book gives me the ‘rest of the story’.” – Txana, on Amazon, a review.
“Thank you for coming. I could tell people really enjoyed the stories you told.”Debbie, Pittsburg Peach Festival
Carmen spins the tales, the true ones, of Texas’ formidable women, stories untold or long forgotten. She’s written about them in columns, magazines, anthologies and books– tales of immigrating to “Tejas” alone and with children, standing off hungry and angry hostiles with guns or baked bread, grubbing to bring forth crops and livestock on land often parched, making hay when wildcatters poked their pastures and hit bonanzas.
Whether about history or writing, Carmen welcomes the opportunity to ‘pass it on.’
