I've had a love of words and writing most of my life. The passion to learn the art and craft took hold as a second career during my recovery from a devastating brain bleed--hemorrhagic stroke--at fifty-eight. I continue learning through books and online courses, focusing on memoir. My personal essays have been published in many online literary magazines, I have self-published three books, and I'll soon release my fourth. I find the act and art of writing are both transformative and therapeutic. My husband and I live in Lewes, Delaware near the Bay, wetlands, and the Atlantic.
