About Me
I am single but have a foster son. I used to work for a small publishing company as a proofreader among other things, so I spent a lot of my time correcting other people's mistakes, but please don't think I don't make any myself! In retirement I am the editor of a community newspaper.

News, sports items, short stories, poems, puzzles.
Writing Style
Not sure how to describe my writing style except I try to write factually, concisely and interestingly.

Salvation Army, football, music, reading, writing, networking (mainly facebook).

Biographical, experience, emotional, religious, inspirational, teen, not necessarily just these.

You can only play the hand you're dealt. Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future. Nothing you have ever done is bigger than God's grace to forgive and restore.
