I am a freelance journalist and poet in pursuit of my MFA degree from Ashland University, Ashland, Ohio. When I am not writing, I enjoy pretending to pursue other hobbies (fanatic exercise, tennis, cooking) so my friends will think I am “normal.” My greatest creations are my three grown children and one almost-grown teenage son. I happily share the credit for them with my husband who has belonged to me for 30 years. I am a follower of Christ. I am a southern girl. This blog is all about my writing adventures.
