I’ve loved writing since I could first scribble out my own name. I remember quietly sitting in a corner writing stories when I was still a young child. When I was in middle school, I designed a website and started a newsletter about a college basketball team. Eventually, that website was reviewed in the Washington Post.
I was on to something. When I write, my soul explains itself to my mind. When my daughter died, I learned to write without abandon, and directly from the heart. All my fears and self doubts were thrown out the back door with the dish water. My daughter, Cora, gave me that give. I haven’t stopped writing, and publishing those thoughts to the world, since she died.
Currently, I’m working on putting Cora’s Story into book form. I’ll update about my progress as that goes.
I’m a monthly contributor at Still Standing Magazine.
In a former life, I was a newspaper staff writer at two community newspapers, The Daily Sun and the Hendricks County Flyer.
