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.
During the past seven years, I turned to writing stories and poems. 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.
My hope is to have these accounts, written as YA and Adult novels published, but along the way I blog to share information on writing, family stories, culture, travel, and favorite books.
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.
