Hello and welcome,
I appreciate your interest in this blog where I share the challenges of life reflected through story and poetry.
Hearing other people’s stories pushed me through difficult times with my challenges of breast cancer, abuse, and divorce. I found that faith, family, humor, and wisdom from other people kept me going.
I’m compelled to write about girls and women whose voices aren’t heard, who have been abandoned, abused and/or made poor decisions. How they pick themselves up, or grab a helping hand, and do better are stories worth telling.
I blog about my writing experiences, writing info, family, culture, travel, and favorite books (find my reviews on Goodreads).
On a personal note, I’m a single mom with three wonderful young adult kids, two left-handed Vegan artists and one cat lover who collects comic books and Frida Kahlo art. Two of them live in Denver, CO where I love to play tourist.
