About her


What can I say I absolutely love writing. When I was in the 5th grade a DARE officer came to my elementary school and told us they would be having an essay contest for the entire school and the winner would receive a special prize. All I could think was, Wow!, I had a pretty good chance of winning this. And what do you know… I read my essay in front of the entire school. The special prize was a medal. I guess that day my talent had officially been ‘discovered’. Later on in my teen years I actually wrote a lot of poetry and kept a diary. Guess what! I was an aspiring rapper but that never quite panned out. Some guy ended up getting away with $75.00 I gave him to enter a showcase that never happened. I tend to go with the flow so I didn’t pursue it any more after a couple of setbacks and lack of confidence in myself (not my rhymes). So what can I say, life happened, I had children and got married to seal the deal. I’m just having fun right now. Hopefully in the future a real job writing will work itself into my life. Writing is where I am confident and at my best.

      Ty so much. You are a woman of God and I love that. It always feels good to meet another sister in Christ and learn something as well.

    Hi! I’ve so enjoyed looking over both your sites…thanks for visiting mine so that I could find yours! And I gotta’ tell you that I wrote a DARE essay back in the day, too! (….and I’m pretty sure that the medal is still among my childhood ‘treasure box’ in the attic….) That day was definitely one of my first writing moments, so it kind of thrilled me to read that in your bio! 🙂 I’m glad to have met a ‘kindred’ soul (cause the DARE thing definitely sealed that!) and I hope to visit here often!
