Profile Information

I am a retired Health Information Management Professional.   I live in Nova Scotia Canada with my husband, two daughters, one dog and one cat.  This is my first attempt at writing.

I am a brain tumor "survivor" thus far and have written a short story about it.  Written in about one half hour it was just a cathartic piece, emotional.  I wrote it with tears running down my face.  I still live in fear each day, though not many people know that.

I have always wanted to write for young people.  I submitted "The Pink Ribbons" to our local newspaper last month.  It received an honorable mention.  I would very much like to have some comments from writers on what I might do to improve this piece.  I personally am proud of this first attempt, but know I have a very long way to go before feeling comfortable calling myself a writer.I hope whoever reads this enjoys it.

I am starting a first novel (I hope). Nothing Nobel Prize worthy, I assure you.  Just hopefully, an entertaining read for youngsters 10-adult.  I myself love to read novels meant for youth.  No big moral ending here.  Will see how it works out.
