I came to writing late, after learning to read at nine years old. But that just made my sense of observation stronger and made me appreciate images more—like those of Venice, Italy. At first I started with poems—scratchings on pink message pads. In an early poem about the seasons, one stanza is about a winter I had not witnessed. My imagination took me places I had yet to experience, took me to worlds and words I was compelled to explore.
With your ongoing support I will be able to research and complete the next three novels in-the-works: The She-Novelist in Venice, My Darling Hattie Belle,and Lost in Ocala. Along the way there will be stories, a poem or two, an article or essay here and there. Like most writers I work in many genres, but the themes in my work are often of women whose stories need to be told, or whose place in history needs to be established and honored. Time is my companion and sometimes my enemy, but writing every day is the main goal.
