Life has taken a shift as of late. My mother passed away on October 20th, 2013. I miss her dreadfully, for you see, she was my confidant and best friend.
Shortly following, my daughter, her husband and their two children moved into my basement suite. Good news! I am not completely alone, and yet I am.
I have been published in Suite 101 with a couple of articles a few years ago. Before that, I had some stories published and won 2nd and third prizes two years in a row in The Carillon. So I guess I can say, I am a published author. Besides that, I self-published a children’s book of rhymes entitled, ‘A Rhyme In Time’. I didn’t try to sell them because the pictures I chose did not fit the pages properly. Another tragic learning experience.
Joining Goodreads, I hope to read the Classics and learn how to write something of value. Right now, I am reading Middlemarch by George Elliot. She is actually a female writer, but in the 1800’s, women were not thought of being intelligent enough to engage in such things. Thus the male name. I’m glad it isn’t like that nowadays.
I hope you enjoy reading my stuff here. Leave a comment or a rating to show my progress, if you will. Thank you!
