How long have you been writing, or thinking about writing?

As a child I pretended to read books before I was old enough to read, making up my own stories. Now I write about my life experiences

What genre do you like to write?

Children's short stories, poems, Christian songs, articles that show a relationship between songs and my own life.

Have you been published? If so, where and in what type of publication (books, magazine, online, blog, etc)

"The Markers", in the Sesquecentennial History of Holy Trinity Church, Comstock Park, Michigan, a true story about the church's cemetary before and after the tornado of 1965. Jan 2011 "Bushel Baskets", RCA House of Hope Everywhere.

Have you ever attended a writers' conference?

I attended the Breathe Writers Conference in October 2010.

In 3 years, what would you like to look back, and see from your writing efforts?

I need to have published a book of children's stories, the ones I tell our grandchildren.


Thanks to the encouragement I've received from this Writer's Group I've submitted stories and articles for publication. On January 15th I played my guitar and sang ballads at a local coffee house, feeling I was in my element, a place I have missed.

What Noreen O. is saying about this Meetup Group

Joining West Michigan Fellowship of Christian Writers is the best thing I've done for my writing aspirations in years. Thanks to a notation on Kathy Bruin's Facebook page, I found you.
