I'm 66 years old, currently living in North Port, Florida. My career was in law enforcement where I retired after serving 32+ years - I have been retired for just about 11 1/2 years. I've been a member of WDC for about 15 years now (actually haven't done anything much with Writing.com for quite a few years...looking to get back into writing). I enjoy writing poetry but sometimes try my hand at some non-fiction and even some fiction/short stories here and there.... I always appreciate people reading my writing and appreciate honest feedback.... God Bless.........
