I look for originality and captivating storylines with a beginning, middle, and end. A well-written and well-edited complete story always gets points from me. And I do love unexpected twists at the end.

 For starters, I’M OLD, ancient even. My third great grandchild was born Friday, February 15. So that makes me…well…OLD. But, I’m young at heart and I believe that if you’re still breathing, it is never too late to achieve your dreams. In the twilight of my years I am off on another grand adventure as an author. I am a published gospel songwriter.  I wrote gospel songs for six years during the 1980’s. One of my poems was published in Seeker Magazine online a number of years ago.  It is called “All There Is.” It was a spur of the moment decision to submit it for publication and to my surprise and joy it was accepted.

I am currently working on my first novel called Stones of Destiny: The Gathering. This will be a series. I started Book One in September 2012 during a free creative writing class I took through Writers Village University, known as F2K, and then furthered the book during NaNoWriMo’s write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days in November. I am still working on Book One and probably will be for months. I am currently a member of several writing groups at WVU.

I joined the Shenandoah Valley Writers Group at the onset of NaNo and have found a fabbie home of fellow writers and friends. I can’t say enough about the benefits of being involved in a group of like-minded individuals. It is a great learning environment and support group where each member is both student and teacher.

A few other tidbits about me: I can read Biblical Hebrew so long as the vowels are present. Love Hebrew. Beautiful language. I have studied many different religions. I am a (retired) paralegal and legal secretary by trade. I do love the creative arts. I draw and paint when I have time and feel inspired. I have also created unique leather bags and pouches as gifts. I am from Arizona but now reside in West Virginia. I have two beautiful daughters, nine grandchildren (eight living) and three great grandchildren.

I am very easy to find on Facebook. Just look up my name and click on the icon with a cat drinking a Starbucks’. That would be ME.  As Porky Pig would say, “DDD…DDD…Dat’s all folks!”
