I’m the mother of three grown children, and I’ve worn many hats in my life. At the moment I take care of three horses, three dogs and a foster pup, four cats, a wonderful husband and two hundred plus orchids and other house plants, including some modest bonsai. I’ve held a part time job for many years.
A visual person, I spent most of my life sketching and painting until the Ice Storm of 1998. We had no power for nine days in the depths of a Canadian winter and worked hard to keep the stove fires burning and the house from freezing. I didn’t sleep for the first three days, and no one slept well as the fires had to be manned (personned) 24/7.
After the Ice Storm, I couldn’t paint anymore. My part-time job had never thrilled me, but it provided windows where I could create if I managed my time very carefully. With no creative outlet, I drifted for awhile, until one of my sons invited me to join him in a Creative Writing Course. I’ve been writing ever since. I publish my poems and short stories here on wordpress, and am working on my first novel at a leisurely pace.
