Writing is one of my passions. Finding time to write is challenging. One day, I will find the time to get my first book published. It is moving forward and I am glad. Please stop by often, and provide me with your thoughts. Be constructive, but don't attack, that frazzles me. It's good to find a place to call my own where I can just write. I approach life with zest and give back at least as much, if not more than I get. I live in Maryland and serve as Mayor in one of its greatest little cities. Write on. WRITE ON!
