You can read even more of my poetry at Birds and Blooms Magazine or Lulu Publishing . I love to read and write. I have a Master's in English Literature and 10 grandchildren for inspiration. I attend Concord University as part of the Prism Program in Athens, West Virginia and I teach 5th grade. I have never lived anywhere outside of the mountains of West Virginia. I have chickens, a fruit orchard, a tree house and a cat, named Bruno. Writing is important to me, both the art of teaching it and creating it.
