Hello world

So here I am, at the age of 50, starting something new: a blog! There’s something exciting about new ventures, they energize me, and keep me green and growing (as opposed to ripe and rotting).   A little introduction: I am a mother of three adult children, a wife, a teacher. I live in a comfortable house in the suburbs, with our dog and three cats.  I speak to my mother several times a day, and cook a healthy, yummy meal almost every night, and exercise moderately.  Pretty ordinary from the outside…

But I also dabble in writing and photography; assist the coach of a ballroom dance team of fifth graders; teach a graduate course as an adjunct professor; roller-blade long distances; and I’m pretty damned good at Wii bowling.  Maybe not so ordinary after all.

So I thought I’d blog and share my life, and hope that you readers out there might do the same.  Maybe we’d learn something from each other; because above all else, I’m a lifelong learner.

I began writing at seven years old. My first rejection was from my mother who would not come off a nickel for a hand-published and self-illustrated scary story. Over thirty-seven years of teaching writing to elementary age children, I honed my skills in storytelling; which led to the completion of my first novel, Woven.
