• I am currently on my 9th chapter of my first novel.  It's a love story.  I'm having a blast writing it.  When I'm not doing that I'm writing letters to the local paper on some issue or another.  I am going back to college to earn a degree in English Lit.

In short

  • I am 46 years old, and going back to college to get my A.A. degree.  I'm pretty sure I want to major in English and get my degree in English Lit.  I'm enrolled in my GE courses right now and am having a blast at it.  I've been married 17+ years, and have three wonderful boys, ages 9,12, and 13.  We have many pets;  a guinea pig, a bearded dragon, a cat and a dog.  I love to write, and in addition to writing poetry and prose, I have also written several songs that I am hoping to get recorded.  I am also interested in publishing a book I've had in mind for over 10 years.  I've already written about three chapters, but it's at that point I get stuck.  I love the movies Lord of the Rings trilogy, You've Got Mail and The Lake House as well as The Matrix.  I'm also a surprise fan of the Twilight Saga, and have read all of the books in the series at least twice.  My favorite actor is Keanu Reeves, my favorite actress is Jennifer Garner.  I love to write.  About anything, but mostly fiction.  My imagination thrives there.  There is where I get lost in a moment, a memory and just about anything else.

  • won 8th place (out of one hundred) for my poem, The Master in the 79th annual poetry writing contest with Writer's Digest.  Cash and prizes.  It's a start!
