My Introduction

Welcome to my blog. Some of you may have come from my website or personal blog, some from Facebook, some from Twitter or referrals by friends. The rest of you have obviously just stumbled in unknowingly. No matter how you found my blog, I hope you'll stay and visit a while. Grab your favorite refreshments, put up your feet and get comfortable.

I'll be blogging about my foray into the world of fiction , general writing topics and maybe a personal post or two. I'm thinking about trying my hand at flash fiction to work on my writing skills. I hope you'll leave your comments, good and bad. I promise to not take offense...well, unless you are obviously behaving as a troll or sock puppet. No one likes them...

A little about me? Okay, I'm a past 60 y/o mother of 10 and grandmother to 25 (large extended family). I currently live full-time in a 41' toy hauler fifth wheel trailer. The back end is a 10' garage for our two Harley-Davidson motorcycles....my other passion.

I am retired from over 30 years in the IT industry, ranging from data entry to consultant to VP of Client Services. It was a good run. I've had some type of home business for the last 20 years, 15 of that doing non-fiction freelance writing. After I was widowed in 2004, I spent weeks traveling the country solo on my Harley. I managed to hit 42 states and rode 27,000 miles. What an adventure!

My husband is retired from over 30 years in a Maryland fire department, ranging from fireman to paramedic to PIO (Public Information Officer). He was widowed when we met in 2008, I was widowed in 2004. We married in 2009 and love our traveling lifestyle. We travel with our young pup, Sadie, a little Boxer mix who has her own blog.

Enough about me...tell me about you!

  2. I'll tiptoe in so as not to wake you. :) Thanks to you already for this blog and your FB page about your writing endeavors. People have told me for years I should write "my" story so . . . who knows, perhaps reading your literary adventures may nudge me a bit closer to finally gettin' with it! Cheers!
