I'm very busy raising an eight year old grandson who has cerebral palsy and is blind in one eye.
I'm editing several novels and have completed two illustrated poetry books. Currently I'm looking for interested publishers.
Would love to keep in touch with everyone who enjoys my poetry but there is never enough time. If you'd like updates on what's going on, you'll find it here.

We are still picking Doogie up from school as the special ed bus takes 1 hour and 5 minutes to make the otherwise 10 minute trip. They are revising their schedule and, hopefully, will fix the problem.
Last night was Open House at the school and we went there for a while. Doogie is really excited about school this year and says everyone is SO friendly.
About his liver: the enzymes levels are elevated again but we haven't heard yet what the doctor intends to do about it. Meanwhile, he's staying on Vitamin E and we're to cut down on dairy products.
Yesterday at 3:39 a.m. Al and I became great-grandparents for the second time but to our first great-granddaughter, Brookyn Taylor weighing in at 7lbs., 11 ozs. Mother and daughter are doing great!
I AM still hoping to get a book submitted somewhere this year--three are nearly ready; two illustrated poetry books and one novel.
Meanwhile I'll keep writing, posting poetry.
Keep in touch and take care.
Love you all,
I met both my first and second husband while working one Saturday at Sears.
My second husband is a craftsman who buys mostly Sears' Craftsman tools as their warranty is forever.
Now that we're older, medical expenses really seem to add up but mine outnumber his 4 to 1. The other day I found him going through old papers and asked what he was looking for.
“I'm looking for your ‘satisfaction guaranteed warranty’. I want to check the expiration date!”
When Doogie, then fours year old, was in preschool, he lost his first tooth. We examined it thoroughly while I explained how another would soon fill its' place. Then we put it under his pillow for the tooth fairy.
I asked him what he thought his new tooth would look like.
Without missing a beat, he smiled. "I hope it's blue."
"Honey, teeth are white." I was curious though. "Why would you think teeth came in colors?"
"Well," he shyly continued, "most peoples' teeth are yellow!"
Keep smiling and everyone will wonder what you've been up to :)!
