Welcome!! Writing comes from a magical place. I want my characters to come to life and remind you of people that you know. When I read I want to feel, whether it is empathy, fear, or suspense. Working as an R.N. taught me how much suffering there is in this world. Now I have a neurological disability that reminds me how special each sunrise is. Family is a loving husband, four adult sons and their partners and six grandchildren that teach me. Home now is a cabin by Lake Allatoona. Breezes whistle poetry through the hardwoods.
