The memory tends to get short as we age; unfortunate for...
I was born and raised in North Carolina, where my heart still resides; but now live in Ontario, Canada. Since retiring I have the time to spend on my passion, which is writing.
I worked for many years with special needs adults and they are some of the best teachers of Life that you will ever know; so get to know them. I promise you the lessons they can teach you are life changing. I believe that angels walk among us and people with special needs are some of the most cherished of Heaven's angels.
I love to laugh and have a sense of humor, which my family tells me sways toward the wicked side. I have a notable temper; but in my defense, it takes allot to boil me over. For the most part I am easy going and I am a people person.I am fascinated by the human mind and even more so by the idea we only use about ten percent of it's capabilities. Some use less than that; but let's go on the averages.
I don't like ignorant people who open their mouths before their brain is fully engaged. Those who judge without knowing; speak without compassion and give their opinions without being informed. There is no cure for stupid; but it can be hidden well if one keeps their mouth shut.
I love sixties music, because I can understand the lyrics in the songs from back then. I also like classical, jazz and some country. I love art in any form; from fine paintings to modern graffiti (without gang logos).
I paint my canvas' in words. For me, it is a way of expressing myself. My philosophy about writing can be read Inside a Writer's Mind a Painter Lives on my list of works.From children's stories, to humor and science fiction, I enjoy the process of putting words on paper and seeing what evolves.
Creating characters or scenes via words that flow from me onto paper is such a rush. Sometimes, if I'm lucky, my characters begin to take on their own voices and lead me where they want to go. That's when I truely feel like a writer. I feel as if I am taking dictation from them and the story flows almost by itself. I find myself surprised by what they say or do. At this point you may want to read I'm Sane I Tell You from my works. lol
I am prolific, some might even say to the extreme, but it is my passion. I also read allot of booksie authors, and enjoy seeing the talent and creativity that is on this site. It takes looking around, but it can be found! I have found many that rank high in talent and over the moon with creativity. In the process I have made some good friends and met allot of really genuine people.
I don't read Romance novels...Vampire (anything)....Werewolves fall in the same category as Vampires....Religious or Political themed work (since I think it is a very personal individual decision as to one's spiritual and political beliefs) and lastly Space / Alien stories that involve wars and conquering galaxies. So, please do not send reading requests for critique on these subjects. I'm not putting anyone's genre down; it just doesn't interest me.
I do read poetry of any kind, short stories and a few novels (if they are well written). I like new concepts and unique pieces. Anything with an unexpected twist is good and of course humorous works are always welcome.
If you read my work, please leave a comment so that I can improve as a writer. Don't sugar coat your critique for fear of hurting my feelings. I am very thick skinned and want only an honest opinion of my works.
I will do the same for you.Clicking the "Like" button is acceptable too! I generally don't send out reading requests; so if you've found me, I hope you enjoy my page enough to come back again.
** I would suggest that if you're new to booksie, you check out some other writers that I admire and enjoy immensely:
Ben A Vanguarde
Bob the Bulider
These are by no means all the good writers on here, but it gives you a place to start reading! :)
