So, watch out for great new work in 2013 (yes, it takes that long!), and while you're waiting, check out Dare To Dream, a poetry anthology debuting this fall. I'm one of many poets whose work is included. And don't forget to browse my Selected Works.
Hope you're having a great summer, too!
Hello there, and welcome!
I've been writing since I was eight years old. Over the years, I've written almost continously on scraps of paper, paper bags, napkins--whatever was handy to capture my ideas. Although in college I was tempted to pursue an art career, writing won out. Now I write mostly on my laptop.
I just love writing! To date, I've had more than 35 books published for preschoolers, beginning readers, and middle graders. I have written educational materials for students and teachers. I've had poetry published in Mobius, The Poetry Magazine, and recently published my own volume of poetry, Spirit Revisited.
And by the way, my "inner artist" is still active. I design and make special gift books for my family every Christmas, I still sketch and paint a bit. I make cloth dolls of all types from my stash of fabrics, buttons, and ribbons. I've worked up the nerve to try my hand at illustrating,too, so stay tuned!
