Welcome to my quiet corner. I can spend hours here, especially early in the morning when I do my best writing, from 5:00-7:00 a.m. You'll also find me here late in the evening. Some days the only exercise I get is when I jump for joy because I have finished a project or received an acceptance. My poetry, prose, and articles have been published in 10 Chicken Soup for the Soul books, 3 Ultimate Books and numerous other anthologies, inspirational,educational and literary publications, periodicals,newspapers, and Ezines. Recently I won a poetry contest; my poem will be displayed inside Metro Link trains and Metro buses in St. Louis, MO. for one year.

I have been an early childhood educator for 32 years and I still consider teaching my dream job. I also teach a senior citizen adult writing class.

I am more determined than dedicated. I write/submit 10-15 pieces per month.
I believe that we are all in this life together; there are no coincidences. I have more faith than religion and I firmly believe that we should help one another and share our gifts and talents.

My husband,Bill, our blended family of four adult children and nine grandchildren bring me abundant joy. Little things make me happy. I MUST write. I'd rather be outdoors hiking in the woods or walking on a beach. The ocean tugs on my midwest soul with the same intensity that the moon pulls the tide. I'm counting down to vacation in July.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment.
