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.

For those of you who sent 'Congratulations' ... Thanks.
However, Doogie's poem, though read and taped, was CUT from 'Annie's' alloted time. Perhaps because of the title of this episode of "Maury Povich" (a talk show for those who asked what 'MP' was): "I look different and have NO friends."
Doogie and his poem to Annie stated otherwise and was contrary to the title: they adored one another for four years ... until Annie moved last June to Wyoming. So~both the kids (not to mention me and Al) were surely disappointed :)!
It's important to me to keep things honest and real so, since I told everyone it was going to be read, I also must inform everyone that it WASN'T and WHY :)!
I'm currently editing my novel "Banjos" and am on pg. 30 (again ...) of 466 pages (Publish America wishes to see it by JUNE--if possible) so please know that I love and care about ALL of you! However, I'm really swamped--Al doesn't do housework, cooking, shopping, pay bills, etc. and is complaining HEAVILY about me spending ANY time on the computer ... especially week-ends. Bear with me please ...
My proposed e-books (4) are in the hands of Peggy Bertrand and Debashish Haar at Mystic East and should become available soon. Until they are, I've no idea how this e-book thing works OR if or how profitable it will be; my heart is set on publishing--not fame or fortune ... though $$$ would be nice :)!

Thanks: Trish MacQueen for working on making "A Touch of the West" into an ebook,
Peggy Bertrand, Debashish Haar, and Mystic East for putting my material together and publishing it
to all my friends who laugh, encourage and loan their shoulders (eyes, ears, etc.) whenever I need them.
Without you, I wouldn't be 'me' ... 'thanks' a ton!
Happy Easter to all of you! May your baskets, bonnets and bellies be filled next Sunday ... and always.
You are all a blessing to me,
