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.

This coming Sunday, Nov. 13th, a crew from TLC's "Psychic Witness" will be coming to tape an interview with me about my only son, Doug (Gregory Douglas Turner), and his murder on Dec. 3, 1992.
Whenever Doug was missing all the interviews (local Dayton/Xenia, Ohio) were with his dad, Dan. Dan recently relocated to Kentucky and wed (2nd time) on Sept. 17th, 2005 so he will not be in this interview.
The producers were unable to locate our daughter, Sherry, so she will not be interviewed either.
All my siblings (Mike and my three remaining sisters) declined a request to be interviewed as well so I will be the only family member discussing Doug.
Also, Doogie 'may' have had a mild case of Bell's Palsy and, though his pediatrician didn't seem overly concerned, he DID call this past Tuesday to request that we take Doogie to a neurologist ... just to be on the safe side.
So~next week Doogie will see a neurologist.
My daughter, Sherry, is pregnant ... again ... 15th time (though only Doogie survived thus far)! She is a high risk patient and is receiving medicine to help prevent a miscarriage or stillbirth.
As the crew will be taping the interview in our home, I likely will NOT be on-line much until next Monday. Al wants the windows 'sparkling' even though it's only 37 this morning. Oh, well, the house does need a thorough 'going over' :)!
Al had bronchitis for a month but is finally feeling better; Doogie was sick for a week prior to Al getting ill. Unfortunately, dealing with all these 'germs' I feel the sniffles coming on but have already begun 'doctoring up' :)!
I'd like folks to 'know' my son ... can't afford to get sick now. On the other hand, it will be nice to have it taped and 'over with.'
Bear with me, keep in touch and take care.
