I am a writer, poet, artist, and musician from the lovely Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I also enjoy history, languages, being outside in nature, good food, cold beer, and football. I have a wonderful man in my life named Jack and a great orange tabby cat named Mack. Yeah, I know, Jack and Mack. I can't make this stuff up!!! I'm glad I found this website and I am enjoying my time here.
