Occupation Writer/Author /Poet
Location Port Jefferson, New York, United States
Introduction I am a poet, writer and author, a wife, mother and grandmother . . . a sister and friend . . . I am a woman! All these roles aside, beneath everything else, I am a human being who inhabits planet earth in this time and space along with you. I have dreams and hopes for our species, longings for our children and the earth they'll inherit, and a passion for freedom and human dignity. I write because the sand is running quick through the funnel and the bridge at the end of the road gets closer every day. My heart is an open book, scribbled on pages for you to read. Hopefully, my poems and words will touch you and add to your life. That is my wish and my blessing. **** Member of the Academy of American Poets and the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. ***Listed in the "Best 100 Poetry Blogs" 2010 and published in Mused-the Online Literary Review/2010 Spring,Summer,Autumn and Winter Issues, 2012 Spring Issue and was the featured Poet in the 2011 Spring Issue.
