I have to say that humor has definitely become my passion. I write a lot of poetry and for those who get into positively-inspired poetry, you can read it on my blog on my website MyVeryOwnFan.com,  I have two books of poetry out as well Poems for a Positive Day  and Poems for a Positive Day II.  As you can tell I am not good at titles. 

Humor has always been inside my head and that explains so much - trust me on this.  My goal is to just make people laugh albeit sometimes in a wicked way. I put out a collection of my humor columns this year entitled Life on the Off Ramp . I have a sample in my booksie portfolio  Anyway, hope I can get a laugh out of you.  If I do, my writing has been a success.  


Thanks for reading my work and I love feedback, so do not be afraid to comment.
