About Me
I grew up in Delaware, near the eastern shore, and spent my childhood delighting in the smell of salty air. I write creative non-fiction short stories about my younger years and the impact of the Delaware marshlands on my life. Now I live in Florida and dream of the Delaware Bay.
Type of Writer
I usually draw from experiences and add a little fiction to the mix. Some call my writing "folksy".
Writing Style
My own.
Reading, writing, drawing, old musty stuff, ie, bookstores and antique shops, face it...just about anything! The photo to the left is of a young lady holding a watercolor I painted of her cat, Arlo. She looks so happy I had to share.

I have too many to list, but I just finished The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope by Rhonda Riley, her first book and a local author. I could not put it down...amazing!

Over time this has changed and continues to evolve, but I still lean toward Austen and the Bronte Sisters...guess I just like that time period.

Favorite Quote
"ring the bells that still can ring, forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in" - leonard cohen I think we all need to be "less perfectionist", but it is a hard thing to do.

Anything from the 60s and 70s.

The Yearling, old, black and white, and still makes me sob no matter how many times I watch it.
