Central Oklahoma has been my home all my life: prairies, thunderstorms, orange-hued sunsets, and tornadoes. Wherever I have been, books have resided. The inquiring mind always needs another book. Alongside my books, films are parked: silent, classic, current, documentaries. History Channel, History 2, Science Channel, Ovation, and Discovery Channel are my most-watched satellite channels for research-based viewing: Battles B.C., Ancients Behaving Badly, How the Earth was Made, What Is Art? etc. Turner Classic Movies is tops for cinema: uncut, shown in the correct aspect ratio, original language, and commercial free! These are all absolutes for the serious movie buff! My B.A. was awarded to me by the University of Oklahoma, and my M.A. was awarded to me by the University of Central Oklahoma.
