What do you hope to get from this Meetup?

Hope to get edit and critic on my book which is going to be published this year. Still transposing sentences due to language barrier.

Are you published, working on it, thinking about it?

This is the year, have the publisher, just need to finish the book! Help!

How long have you dreamed of or been writing?

Actually, in 1976 I had a dream! Three books were floating up in the air! I still recall the titles and colors of the covers. I have been writing since I was a little girl, poems, stories, of course, in Portuguese. But, I guess I could translate, but it would loose much in meaning and depth.

What's your genre of choice when writing?

My present book is a non-fiction, but I love to write about anything, if you get me started, I never stop, I always have topics. I am actually beginning to live my dream life now! I am a WRITER!!!

What's your genre of choice when reading?

As a lifetime student, I read everything, whether be in Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, English, French and now I am trying to learn Chinese so I can read more and more. I have at least 30 bookcases of books, even though I have donated thousands to libraries whenever I move. Many people run the other way when I ask them to help me move, since I have so many books, and I have read them all, more than once! Spiritual, motivational,foreign,non-fiction,historical,medical,legal,psychological,ethics,leadership,organizational management, realty, is there anything better than reading....well, lets keep it clean!


Came from Brazil to the US by ship through the Panama Canal, it took 21 days and I spoke only two English words "boy & taxi"! Presently, a PhD student of Philosophy.
