About Me

My first novel was inspired by my own childhood on Pungo Creek in rural North Carolina where I grew up in a house shared by three generations. It seems it took a lifetime to write but it was actually only three years.

My second novel, FANNY'S TATTOO, was written in 28 days.

My husband and I share our lives with an stubborn Samoyed and a sweet Dalmatian/Pointer mix. We divide our time between Falls Church, Virginia and Solomons Island, Maryland.

I am currently at work on a memoir about my year on a commune in Embudo New Mexico.

Writing is a lonely business and I need lots of support. I have found many teachers, mentors and friends through the International Women's Writing Guild. If you are interested in learning more about the IWWG you might check their website - www.iwwg.org.

I can't imagine anyone giving you a bad rating. I love your writing. I agree with Emily Burns...talent and hard work shine through your pages and no amount of gealousy induced rating sabatoge will ever stand up to the inspiration contained within your peices.
Carry on and Chin up, dear.

I came here with a handful of poems a little less than a year ago. . . amazing things happened. :-D

You should check out the writing of J. Hampton some time. I think you'll like her.

Don't worry about the bad rating. Some small people do that just to try to boost their own ratings. It sucks, it really does. But in my mind talent and hard work will always overcome petty sabotage.

I hope it's a better day.

Tell me more about Myra Shapiro. Been tossing around the idea of opening a writers retreat myself.
