Sometimes, the younger self unknowingly has foresight of who we will be in the future. In the small print beneath my high school yearbook photo, I quoted Georgia O'Keeffe, "I find that I have painted my life, things happening in my life - without knowing."

 

From reporting on the return of the cotton crop to Georgia farmlands to providing resources for parents raising children with special needs, I have been writing for magazines and newspapers for more than 20-years. Those stories, as much as my own life experiences, have created the landscape of my life. Each interview, each draft, each publication, adding color, texture and detail.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English and Professional Writing from Fitchburg State College and a Master's degree in English and Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University. My professional writing activities now include writing non-fiction articles for magazines, crafting personal essays, sermons, and fiction short stories, chiselling out poems, and coaching other writers in their art.
