Having grown up on a ranch I have seen nature up close and personal. My greatest wish is to share the humorous and sometimes sad side of ranch-life, including the people and animals we care for. In the past few months I have been attempting to write poetry. The poems are a far cry from what I usually write and I hope you will take it into consideration that I'm still learning. Having said that, I hope you will read and enjoy what I have to offer. I lost the love of my life in 2012 and have been in limbo since. Trying to figure out who I am without him and running the ranch alone. I did publish a book of short stories and bad poetry in 2012.
