I'm a happily divorced woman with two step-children and no children of my own. I'm very close to my nine brothers and sisters which means a lot to me. I have one younger sister who passed from Cancer and one older sister who passed from a brain aneurysm about four years ago. I miss them both so terribly much! Being that I grew up in a rural setting in Ohio, I am still just a country girl at heart. I love nature and feel close to God there. You will find that I am also a very Spiritual person in reading my poetry. Over the 24 years that I lived in AZ, I have been an Art Teacher, a Social Worker/Counselor, a Singer and Sales Executive. I am now retired and living in Texas near my youngest sister and her family. Writing is my passion. It keeps my life in balance. Whether it be a poem, a short story or a romance novel, I am happiest when I am writing and only hope that others will find meaning in my offerings. I have written one novel so far called, 'The Heart of Topanga Lake' which is awaiting publication.
