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.

I've been ill for the past six months (off and on) but am now feeling MUCH better. A variety of old age problems :)!
Despite that, babysitting Mariah, 2, housekeeping and helping Doogie with his homework (he is going to high school - - 9th grade - - in the fall; turned 14 on April 22nd), I finally finished self - publishing my second illustrated poetry book, "An Artistic Appreciation of Jesus".
Blurb sent me an e - mail of 'new changes': general change in pricing, pagination - - adding an extra 10 pages (making my book 80 pages instead of 70) at no additional cost - - - SO ~I'm NOW adding MORE of my poems/art before selling my book to the public. I've placed a HOLD on it.
I took 10 pages of my work OUT to add 'guests' and now I'm getting them back!
Isn't God wonderful?
Am I being realistic? Yes! I don't expect Him to sell them door - to - door :)! The book will rest on its' own merits; God assists us in ALL ways!
Afterwards, work on "AAA of Jesus, Book II" will begin in earnest. Again, I'm open to 9 - 10 'guests' of religious/inspirational poetry or photographs. Unless you are an artist submitting your OWN art or can provide a signed permission slip from the artist of your work, I must refrain from others' art. Your poems MAY have my artwork (if you choose to have art) and/or your photographs MAY have my artwork overlayed on it.
Again, there is no pay or currency or a book. Sorry. My 'guests' help me spread the Word/love of Christ. Everyone who orders thru me will receive whatever discount "I" can provide plus they will be 'inscribed' or 'autographed' if requested.
God Loves You and So Do I!
