I began writing by composing greeting card verses for an artist friend who was publishing cards. This led to truisms I superimposed on my photographs, sold on plaques. Next, I discovered writing sites on the web, and I've spent the last 4 years improving my work. I've posted on many of the sites and won occasional contests. Poetry is my love, but fiction fulfills another part of me. When I write, nothing else exists but the magical world created by my words.
