She’s one busy bee with several projects in various stages of completion and characters and stories waiting for their chance to finally get out of her head and onto paper.
Regina lives smack in the middle of Tennessee in a tiny town near Murfreesboro and that’s where she daydreams and gets the inspiration for her stories.
“On a good day I’m scatterbrained but on a bad day I’m not listening to a word anyone is saying,” she says.
“I’m not a good listener. I have every intention of zeroing on what the other person is saying, but about three minutes into any conversation all I hear are the sounds of the adults talking in a Charlie Brown cartoon.
"I could never be the president of the United States. There would be nuclear bombs exploding and I would just be wondering why doesn’t someone stop that awful noise so I can go back to daydreaming?"
Borrowed Wings, a cute story for 2-8-year-olds, has received the Children's Literary Classics Seal of Approval and a 5 star review from Readers' Favorite.
Baby Dragon wants to fly more than anything else in the world, but his head is too big, his stomach is too round and his wings are too small. Mother Dragon is more than happy to let him borrow hers.
It’s a story about the circle of life, and how sooner or later, we all need help from someone else.
“The inspiration for Borrowed Wings came during a time when my father was bedridden with Lou Gehrig’s disease,” Regina said.
“My two sisters and I were trying to help my mother with his care at the same time my two oldest grandchildren were born. I was struck by how at the beginning and end of our lives we depend on those others when we aren’t able to care for ourselves.”
