Welcome to my page!

 

I hope you will find some of my work entertaining. I enjoy writing poetry, short stories and children's literature.

I am sixty-three years old and live in Ontario Canada, although I was born and raised in North Carolina USA.

I enjoy art in any form, beit well done graffitti or paintings worthy of being hung in museums. Music, dance and all other forms that allow one's imagination to express the joy of life are all a part of the tapistry that weaves the world of art.

I choose to write because I find words paint pictures in the reader's mind and allow them to escape from their reality to mine. I am always happy if my work touches the reader emotionally, or just brings a smile to their face.

I would be delighted, if after reading some of my work, you leave a comment to let me know if you liked it or have suggestions for improvement.
