I am a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and a refugee from corporate America. The best relationships in my life exist because the other person has the marvelous ability to overlook my faults and discover something worthy of their friendship, sometimes even their love. In 2011, I made my debut as an Indie Author with my first published work of fiction, Summoning The Strength. It is a tribute to some amazing women. I attempt to be humorous, always honest, for those interested in what I have to say. I’m married to a loyal New York Yankees fan with whom I have raised two children, relocated a dozen times, and shared the best years of my life.
Countless people have influenced me for better or worse. I am fiercely loyal to the ones closest to me and gracious to those who otherwise deserve a swift kick. I have a Nikon camera. I love to take photographs. Occasionally I wax poetic. I’ve been known to dance with wild abandon without regard for who’s watching.
I believe each of us deserves to be free from poverty, fear, and oppression. I believe we all need clean water, fresh air, nutritious food, and liberty to be at our best. I believe these are reasonable expectations. Every person who comes onto this planet needs parents who have self-respect and who teach their children to respect others. The world needs leaders who promote a safe environment where the wonders of the world can be discovered in peace. People not equipped for these obligations should not become parents, or pretend to be leaders.
I often go into great detail when giving my opinion. I usually ask and answer my own questions in a conversation style that makes my husband crazy, but he deals with it because I am an excellent cook. I like red wine. Southern English is my first language. My father taught me that if I give the world my very best I will get kicked in the teeth, but that I should do it anyway. I love him for giving a fine example to live up to and I have spent my life trying very hard to do just that.
Sometimes I have a bad attitude.
