About Me

Oklahoma Redbud Tree
The Oklahoma state tree is the Redbud. Every spring, before the other trees begin to green-up, the bright pink blossoms of the Redbud paint the landscape, representing re-birth and continuity.
The Rose Rock is distinct to Oklahoma and represents the uniqueness of us all.
My name is Susan and while not born in Oklahoma, I live there by choice. I have degree’s in Computer Science and Business Administration and currently work as an business analyst in the Health Care industry.
My secret dream has always been to be a writer.   I participated in NaNoWriMo in 2009, and met the 50,000 word challenge. I also participated in Camp NaNoWriMo (April 2014) by posting 15,000 words toward to working novel. This blog is one step in improving my writing skills and tapping into the creative life-blood we all possess.My blog goal is one blog a week but this is a work in progress so don’t give up on me yet. I hope to write in the spirit of the Redbud and Rose Rock by posting new and interesting blogs that are uniquely my own.
I welcome all comments and I hope those of you who visit my blog will come back often.

    1. Naming a blog is hard! I think part of blogging is discovering who you are and it’s sort of like naming the new baby before their personality forms.

    1. Thank you back. I’m finishing up a writing course and hope I can start devoting more time to the blog. It sure takes a lot of time.

  1. Love the name and your blog! I can relate to having more to do, than time to do it all. You now have a new follower. I can’t wait to see what else you write!

    1. Thank you for your kind words and choosing to follow me. I haven’t written for awhile but trying to get back into the habit. I’m hoping I will have something this weekend.

  2. Hi Susan, I have a redbud tree in my garden in Melbourne. It’s my favourite tree and I didn’t know it’s name, I’ve always called it the “love tree” because of its heart shaped leaves 🙂 Now I am going to explore the rest of you blog.

    1. I love Redbuds too Barbara. The Redbud is the Oklahoma State tree and when you start seeing pink splashes among the trees, you know spring is near. The picture on my blog was taken in my yard. Thank you for following.

    1. OMG! Did I miss an email because I didn’t get notified. Thank you so much. I really feel honored. I admit I have been lax. My day job is sucking the life out of mr. But I will definitely take a look at this. Thank you again!

  3. Hi again, Susan, I was kinda joking about the book, but thank you for buying it anyway.
    Either you are not writing much, or I am incompetent at navigating your blog. I do hope it is the latter.
    Thank you also for visiting Sound Bite Fiction, every comment is appreciated.
    Do you think my readings contribute at all to the stories?

  4. I have a couple of blogs but haven’t been keeping up with them much. SPF is pretty much the extent of my contribution to the literary world. But I keep hoping.

  5. Hey, Susan, it is your cousin, Sheila. I did not realize that you had a blog. I came up on the ‘Descended From Royalty’ by accident in my search for the origin of the Union Cemetery, especially the name, in Comanche County, Texas.

    1. Hi Sheila, I started that blog several years ago for genealogy, but have since rolled it into another one I had called Redbuds and Rose Rocks. I took those photos when my husband and I were traveling through Texas. I didn’t have much time to look around but it was interesting none the same. Do you know where Swan Hill was in relation to town? That’s where grandma said she grew up, and all I remember is one time driving past where the old house use to sit and all that was left was a chimney. Or maybe I am mixing that memory with another.

      1. It is my understanding that Swan Hill was close to Hazel Dell which is ENE of Gustine. I belong to a group that is all about Gustine. Let me ck on there and see if anyone can be more specific.
