About the Author
is always nice to know a little about the person who is writing the
poems, short stories or articles you are reading. So I am going to tell
you a bit about me.
was born on January 1st, 1955. Yes, I am a New Years Baby. I hear that
all the time. Not the first of the year but I think I came a close
second. My parents had tried very hard to get me to come a day or so
earlier, but I guess I wanted to have a chance at being number one.
I had a grandmother, Elizabeth J Miller, who was a gifted writer. I
sometimes feel she is a part of me as this writing all comes so easy.
She also wrote many poems and short stories. If I ever get the link to
her website my cousin set up in her honor, I will link it to this one.
It's funny how close I feel to my grandmother. She died at a rather
young age and I was only 3 years old. She had a very bad type of asthma.
Sometimes I feel as if someone is leading me as I write. Some poems,
such as the creation were written without me even realizing the words
were flowing and I was writing them down. I was a senior in high school
sitting in my home room class when that happened.
does, I have grown older. I have 4 children, 2 girls and 2 boys. They
are wonderful people and are also grown up now. Only one remains at
home for a little while yet. My youngest finished college and is now
starting the police academy in hopes of getting a job with a police
force after graduating.
My three other children are working in
their careers. My daughters have blessed me with 7 grandchildren at
this time with the 8th due October 29th. There are 5 girls and 2 boys
right now. The newest will also be a boy. All grandchildren age between
2 and 7 years. I babysit the older 5, the two youngest are twins and
go to a daycare. They do keep me busy, but I enjoy spending this special
time with them all. They also love my stories.
I live in the
United States, in Ohio. I am married and we just celebrated our 38th
year of marriage. A great joy is my parents also just celebrated their
62nd year of marriage. They are turning 84 this year.
I have my dog, Roscoe and a stray cat who really lives at our house named, Porter.
I am a Christian. I believe Jesus died for me so that my sins will be
forgiven and I can join him in heaven to serve him there some day. Not
in a big hurry though.
I also have two blogs I have written
and may write a third that are my own. Then I write articles for 4
other blogs owned by another person. I enjoy spending time on the
internet and have many friends from all over the world.
hope you enjoy the site. Someday I may add a way for your to
communicate with me and express feelings about what you have read.
Thanks for visiting my site and learning more about me.
