You can read even more of my poetry at Lulu Publishing . I love to read and write. I have a Master's in English Literature and 10 grandchildren for inspiration. I attended Concord University 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, a cat, named Bruno and an Australian Shephard named Bailey. Writing is important to me, both the art of teaching it and creating it.
