When I was growing up I enjoyed writing poetry, singing and acting, but when I embraced the feminist movement during the 70’s and 80’s, I took on more left-brain pursuits – a Masters and Ph.D. while raising three kids, college teaching, writing and editing academic prose – rather than ventures in the arts. I kept those right-brain temptations at bay until a lovely man I met and married encouraged me to write poetry again.

We live in Colorado near children and SEVEN grandchildren. You can reach me by email at

I hope you enjoy my work.


P.S.  I’ve never been much into award recognition, so I’d appreciate it if I don’t get nominated for the WordPress community awards.  Thanks for your understanding.
