Hi! I am Adon George—pronounced uh-dawn— I’ve spent half my life correcting people on that one. I was named after the Greek God Adonis thanks to my hippie mother. I was born in Odessa, TX, then moved to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area at the age of twelve. My family offered a very wide range of religious backgrounds including Lutheran, slightly Catholic and Wiccan, although I am not particularly religious myself. I only mention my religious upbringing because it has provided me with insight into many different lifestyles and points of view on life in general.
In 1994, I graduated High School in Arlington, Texas and began working right away. My husband and I met shortly thereafter and after a whirlwind romance, began a family quite unexpectedly. In 1997, we moved to Oklahoma to be near his family and raise our daughter, Naomi George. After her first year, I began working for the Chickasaw Indian Tribe. It’s been eleven years and I am still managing one of their tobacco stores.
I did attend college for a short time, but decided my time was better spent with family. My son, Vinny, was born in 2004 and my husband and I felt that our family was complete. This feeling was abruptly ended in March of 2007 when Naomi died at the age of ten due to a brief illness. Since her death, my life has taken on new meaning. I am no longer willing to sit by and wish for things to happen.
Life is filled with the experiences and realities that we create and I intend to create a very full and productive life. I spend time with my son, husband, family and friends and cherish every moment. I have always enjoyed writing and after much deliberation and prodding from family and friends, I completed this story. My hopes for this work is to entertain and audience and fulfill a sense of accomplishment for myself.
