A cabin, a cup of coffee and a typewriter; a picture I’ve carried around in the back roads of my mind for several years. From a rebel in the ’50’s to a college graduate in the ’90’s, I have evolved. Many roads have I traveled and many travelers have I met along the way; all with stories to be told. With faith in God and “dust on my shoes,” I travel the writer’s path.
“It’s never too late,
and you are never too old,
to do what you have always wanted to do,
but never had the time.”
I was born in Pontiac, Illinois and attended Pontiac Township High School in the ’50’s during the beginnings of Rock n Roll. My paths in life have taken me from a teenager in the fifties to the U.S. Navy in the sixties; from a blue collar worker to a nursing degree; from Illinois-Arkansas-Florida-Tennessee and back to my hometown in Illinois. Before retiring from nursing, I was working as an RN, focusing on the care of hospice patients and their families.
My writings are about faith, hope, love and the human condition. I write in various genres and am presently working on two books. It is my hope that the thoughts and images expressed in my writings will find a way to speak to your heart.
