Reading has been a passion since my Golden Book days. Writing has been a pleasure for almost as long.
I started writing on-and-off for publication at seventeen when my first poem was published. While I set out bound for fiction writing – and I did some of that – my jobs required writing promotional materials, grants and RFPs and the like … not the stuff of dreams, but at least I was writing.
At one time, I specialized in content about business, vocational education and career development. I wrote feature articles and – for six years – a weekly column, On the Job Front.
Currently, my focus is largely on poetry and fiction, though I do write the occasional feature article.
The Blogging Adventure
My blog has undergone many incarnations, an evolution of sorts. I barely knew what a blog was when I began in 2008. After about a year, I started – quite by accident – focusing on poetry, which lends itself well to the sound-bite world of the blogosphere.
