Grew up in St. Louis, went away for college, married before senior year. Three children, two grandchildren, Live on a horse farm in Chesterfield (St. Louis), MO.

My initial attempt to write in a poetic style and meter was after the birth of our first grandchild in 1999, something special to read as we all gathered together when he came home. My first full poems were right after the death from cancer of a very close friend in 2000. In 2001, I was diagnosed with and operated on for prostate cancer. So, some early inspirations came from birth, a threat to life, and death. 

Some of what I write about is intimate, close to the bone. A question I’ve been asked is: why not just keep a private journal rather than writing and publishing for friends and strangers to hear and read? First, I’m used to writing for others from my years at the university. Second, it’s both affirming and comforting for me. It helps me get through life’s realities. It’s cathartic for me to share my stories, reveal my feelings.
