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 four poetry books published at Amazon. One is titled, One With Nature in New Hampshire - nature poetry - and the other is titled, Hope - with positive inspirational affirmations.  Both are available on kindle and in paperback. Also, I have the next edition of Nature poetry published in paperback titled Dreams of Nature and I have a love poetry book published in paperback titled:  Angelic Butterfly filled with 100 Love Poems.

I like to paint landscape and wildlife oil paintings. I have an art gallery that will be re-opening Spring of 2018.  I am also a musician and play piano with over 100 songs written and recorded. If you would like to visit my website, please go to

 I fully enjoy this wonderful site and thank everyone for your support here.
