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 five poetry books published at Amazon.  A series of three Nature Poetry Books titled, One With Nature in New Hampshire, Dreams With Nature and A Walk Through Nature With Heidi Sands.  Another poetry book titled, Hope - with positive inspirational affirmations and a love poetry book titled, Angelic Butterfly filled with 100 Love Poems.  All these are available in paperback.  Some available on kindle.

I like to paint landscape and wildlife oil paintings. I have an art gallery that I open Spring - Fall.  I am also a musician and play piano with over 100 songs written and recorded. If you would like to visit my creative website, please go to http://creativecallings.jigsy.com.

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

This is not to initiate problems. I just believed contests are to be judged blindly and there seems to be a pattern they are not. Only a point to make and hope that sponsors will judge blindly, out of respect for everyone. Thank you.
