I believe that I am not qualified to write from a formal education standpoint—having only a tenth grade education. My father committed suicide when I was seventeen, and I had to quit school. However, I do feel qualified to write because I write from my heart and believe this is the most important part about good writing. I have also written the book titled My Life Story: Tragedy and Spirituality. It talks about tragedy that I overcame and am now living life with a positive attitude. I believe that it is easier to get thru life’s problems, with a positive attitude. Another book that my husband Mike and are now writing is titled: Dream Big and Dream Bold. If you have a negative attitude and or believe that you can’t achieve your dreams, this book might help. Join Mike and I to support each other in fulfilling our dreams. We will believe in you and you can believe in us. You can visit my website to stay in contact, which is located on the back of the book.
I can relate to most of my poems because I am trying to grow spiritually. Also we are all on a journey to grow spiritually. In my mind it is the journey that is most important and not the destination.
I was born, raised, and lived in Michigan for fifty-five years. My sister, Beverly, currently lives in Michigan. My husband, Mike, and myself love it there. My heart and soul never left Michigan when we moved. We are currently living in Naples, Florida, close to Mike’s parents. We love it here too but really miss Michigan.
We have a dog named Marty and a bird named Rascal. Marty is the king of the house and Rascal is the queen. As you can probably tell, we are great animal lovers.
