I started writing short stories and poetry when I was eight years old. After I got married, I gave up writing. I've been widowed now for almost ten years and have decided to take up writing again, and even more importantly, submit my work for publication. This was something I was always too terrified to do before. I have published over twenty poems and short stories. I made my first fiction sale in October 2011, to Literary Mix Tapes anthology "Eighty Nine" with my story "Nowhere Land."
I write speculative fiction. For me, that means a blend of fantasy, science fiction and horror.
I live in Pinellas Park, Florida.
