Born in Augusta, GA, I was
raised in the country in Albany. So, you can say I am a Georgia Peach. I am a tomboy and a country girl. I am now a grandmother and great grandmother. I have done almost everything in life and still have a bucket list. I have loved writing for many years. The secret of good writing is to write and revise daily. Working full time has never allowed me to pursue writing professionally because of lack of time. At one point in my life, I wrote a lot and submitted to every type of publisher and was rewarded with lots and lots of rejections. I asked God at that time to give me a sign. He did and I won a writing contest with Writer s Digest. That was years ago. Since that time, I have written a bi-monthly newsletter and personal poetry for friends and family along with a unique seasonal poem that a select group of friends and family enjoy. This new writing venue with Yahoo will give me a chance to polish any writing skills I possess and share with others a piece of myself. Peace, love, and ice cream, I say!
