Bloggers Photo

I am a freelance writer and artist living in New England. I have articles published in Woman's Own Magazine, Parentguide News, Our Journey, Franklin Publishing, London Press, and newspapers. I have poetry published in Womankind Anthology and Our Journey. I have two books published on Kindle and in paperback, Amazon. One is called One With Nature in New Hampshire - nature poetry - and the other is called Hope - with positive inspirational affirmations.

My next poetry book that will be at Amazon soon will be a love poetry book. I have a true crime book completed ready for publication titled, 'It's Never Too Late To Tell'.

I like to paint landscape and wildlife oil paintings. I am also a musician and play piano with over 100 songs written and recorded.  I fully enjoy this wonderful site and thank everyone for their support here.

Thank you
