Hello and thanks for stopping in!

I am a free-lance writer.  I’ve been blogging for more than 5 years.  I write poetry, short stories, fiction and true stories.  You will also see posts about my day to day life at times.

I am working on 2 novels that I hope to have finished in the near future.

My life has been quite diverse, to say the least.  My first few years of life were spent in the woods of the Pacific Northwest.  My father was a timber-faller.  We lived in a shack with no electricity or running water.  Later on, my mother married a migrant worker. We lived in Picker’s Cabins, tents or the back of the station wagon. My parents did whatever it took to follow the fruit and make a living.

Some of what you will see here is based on these life experiences.   Other posts come from other inspiration.

If you would like to contact me personally, please fill out the form on my Contact page and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

I hope you enjoy!

    Always wanted to visit the PNW. Most of the photos I fall in love with were taken in Oregon. What an interesting life!
