I am a retired business and education professional who began writing late in life. Most of my writing is biographical, reflecting my life, my travels, my experiences, and that of my family. I have also written fiction and children’s stories. I joined WDC in 2009 to help improve my writing skills. Most of the entries on this site were entered in contests in order to obtain feedback on the quality of my writing. I have incorporated the experience and feedback into my published work. Although I do visit WDC as much as I did in the early stages, I still consider it a valuable resource.
