In short

  • I am passionate about my beliefs, and am dedicated to my Heavenly Father who I have a covenant with. My family are right up there with Heavenly Father who are first in my life.

     I have a strong testimony of Jesus Christ and the Atonement. I am extremely blessed.

    I love solitude, hiking and climbing steep hills, which makes me feel so exhilarated.

    I write... with poetry being my first love and hobby. My early childhood began my passion for writing, which is when I fell in  love with  poetry.

    I love water, be it the beach, a lake, pond, stream, it doesn't matter, I just like to sit and meditate by water, and watch the reflection of the sun rise or fall.

    A very important thing  is laughter and a sense of humor is a MUST!!!   And I  adore children and babies, who wouldn't.

    I have over 30 years of experience with the Florida State Government, 14 years in various areas and 18 years with the Florida Department of Corrections. I have also
    taught for the Florida Department of Corrections, Basic Recruits, Employees,
    and also Basic Recruits for a Law Enforcement Academy. I have recently retired from Corrections.  This is a great opportunity for me to pursue my writing.

    I write what I see, what I feel, and inspiration is a gift I have received from somewhere in the Universe.  I learn continuously, each and every day, searching for more and more to learn.

    Loving children and nature is something I possess.

    I have had poems published, have taken writing courses, and submitted children's fiction for publication.

    Being introduced to like-minded individuals and such talented writers has been such a pleasure for me.   I have been so impressed with the writers and new friends I have made  on this web-site.  And, of course I have some favorites who I feel as though I know personally.

  • I do not claim to be a person or thing revered as a goddess in a society in which money is the only deity, therefore, I have no claim to fame.
