What is your background in writing, what would you like to work on in the group, and where you from?

All during high school in the Panama Canal Zone, working there after graduating from college, getting involved there in music and theatre, I've kept journals regularly (burned the ones from high school) & written poetry whenever inspiration strikes. I started writing poetry in eighth grade & have continued journaling (but haven't burned any of these) since I moved into my first apartment—read: lived alone—in Cincinnati, Ohio. I've had and am still having a pretty interesting life, at least to me, and would like to write about it. And now that I've discovered how much fun writing fiction can be, I expect I'll be doing a lot of that as well.


Born in Kentucky, grew up in Panama, graphic artist for ±5 yrs, 25+ yrs as a professional opera singer/actor/teacher­. I retired those careers & have time for another passion—writing—whic­h I've done since I learned to print, i.e., from ever.
