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.
On a personal note, I’m blessed to have three wonderful young adult kids, two left-handed Vegan artists and one cat lover who collects comic books and Frida Kahlo art. When I’m not writing, I’m traveling, hiking, or reading.
