Hi! At 68 years old, I am exploring writing. I joined Shiawassee Area Writers a little over a year ago. It is a new group that is growing rapidly. Not even a year old, the group which had some seasoned authors and new writers, started a project to put an anthology together. Eighteen of our twenty-nine members offered 2500 words to the project. We were given the choice to display our words as we chose; one story or several, poems, combination of story(ies) and poem(s). On September,30, 2018 "Winter in the Mitten" debuted. I have one long story "Evergreen" in the book. This is the first book in a series. We are now working on "Spring in the Mitten."
When I was in my early forties, I went back to school. I wanted to be an author. I earned an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts and graduated with honors. What I discovered was that writing is not easy. It is a craft and skill that does not come easy to me.
I love to read and I can't even tell you how much help I have received by it. My hope is that my stories about my everyday journeys will lift someone's spirit. In the process, I pray that God will be glorified.
My family, church and community, and my writing group are my top priorities. Life to me is all about connection and helping one another.
