What do I write about? Just look under “Categories” and you’ll find an ever-growing list of things, or check out “Recent Posts” and pick a title.
You’ll see, for instance, the category “Air Cancer” that is my euphemism for the chemotherapy “Journey” I’ve been on since August, 2011, to deal with the cancer with which I was diagnosed during May of that year. Writing about the subject — and approaching it with humor — are a wonderful part of the healing process 🙂
I make my home in Stuart, Florida, where I am a member of She Writes, the Palm City Word Weavers (PCWW) and the Florida Writers Association (FWA). I’m also a proud Grandma and in my former “life” I was a “social servant” for thirty-eight years. I still love to upset the bureaucratic apple cart from time to time. 😉
A life-long lover of books and writing, I’ve published both short stories and poetry. It wasn’t until 2011 that I turned my full-time attention to the craft of writing. During November, 2011, I participated for the first time in the annual, international writing challenge called “NaNoWriMo” (National Novel Writing Month) and was deemed a “Winner” for cranking out a 50,000 word novel during the event.
I enjoy writing both fiction and non-fiction. My current works-in-progress include a novel in the mystery-suspense genre, a novel in the women’s literature genre and a non-fiction book for first-time cancer patients. A chapbook of my poetry recently was submitted for the Writer’s Digest Poem-a-Day Chapbook Challenge.
During 2012, my goal is to add some interesting guest blogs as well as some book recommendations and interviews with fellow writers. I invite you to make yourself comfortable as you mosey about my blog and I encourage you to please leave a comment and to click on “Follow” and “Like” me on Facebook!
May your journey through the blogosphere today be a pleasant one. Stay well, read a lot and I look forward to seeing you again soon!
