I am a writer. I haven't always been a writer, but managed at all times to pursue my love of words through reading and writing. Sometimes I get so carried away with my love of words I also proofread and beta read for other writers.
I grew up the middle child but it doesn't seem to have caused any difficulty in carrying out my roles as a wife, mother, grandma and great-grandma. When opportunity provides, you'll find me writing or reading. I love words!
My current work-in-progress is a memoir, the story of a Southern matriarch and how she ruled the roost with not so pleasant methods. On occasion, I have been lucky and written essays that actually were accepted for publication in anthologies.
My writing and proofreading experience reaches back to near age 12 when my publisher and printer father decided he needed some part-time help on several large government projects. He trained me to proofread and edit, and on weekends and school holidays I had my own mini-office in my bedroom dedicated to my efforts.
Daddy was the source of my love of words. Words have always fascinated me, but life has inserted itself along the way. Now a retired legal secretary, where I used these skills, I now enjoy the time to focus on my passion for writing.
