My Website / Portfolio:
Born, raised and educated in New England, I spent close to a decade working and adventuring in Texas and Colorado before returning to New England to settle down and raise a family. A published how-to-article in Sunshine Magazine, the completion of a writing course at the Institute of Children's Literature, and a poem published in the National Poetry Anthology remain treasured symbols from the beginning of my writing career. Although this career has been in hibernation through numerous cold Maine winters; with the melting of the snowbanks into a sea of green and flowers blossoming all around, so emerges the face of a dormant writer ready to spring forth once more....
My greatest strength lies in being able to paint an image in the mind of the reader. I am a poet, song lyricist, greeting card verse originator, short story and children's story writer. These are the outlets that best provide me with an opportunity to use my imagination and release the muse inside. I am also a remarkable proof-reader with an excellent command of the English language.
