I live in Onalaska, Wisconsin with my husband and two Shih Tzu. I enjoy crafting, reading and spending time with my family. I started writing about eleven years ago and get much of my inspiration from my nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Several years ago, I took an online course in children's writing where I was published in several magazines.. This led me to branch out into poetry, non-fiction and fiction, thus starting my worldly adventure that writing is a journey, not a destination.
When I'm not writing I am working with my sightless Shih Tzu, Shah'kah. He is my constant companion and reminder that we can accomplish whatever goals we set for ourselves.
Currently, I am awaiting a publication date for my first 21st century paranormal romance, titled SWEET BLOOD.
I am now working on a special non-fictional book on how I came to be raising a blind dog. The book is titled, BLIND LEADING the BLIND.
I have a current website and blog page that you can visit and post on at: www.artistofthequill.com.
In 2013 I published my poetry e-book, LEGENDS & DREAMS & REALITY anthology of the Gold Prospecting which can found only on Smashwords.
In 2010 I published another poetry book, HEAVENLY ANGELS AMONG US that is still available through iUniverse and other online stores.
In 2008 I wrote a tried and true "green" cookbook on Solar Cooking titled, OVER THE HILL COOK'IN Solar Cooking/Baking Cookbook.
